In what important way does competitive inhibition differ from allosteric regulation?

0 votes

 

Allosteric regulation is important in maintaining homeostasis, whereas competitive inhibition is not.

During competitive inhibition, a regulatory molecule binds to the active site, whereas during allosteric regulation, a regulatory molecule binds to a site other than the active site.

They are two different terms that mean the same thing.

During competitive inhibition, a regulatory molecule binds to a site other than the active site.
