Enzyme Inhibitors is a molecule which acts by binding to an enzyme reversibly or irreversibly and decreasing or completely inhibiting its catalytic activity. Enzyme inhibitors are made up of protein and they occur naturally. Since blocking an enzyme's activity alter a biochemical process and cause imbalance which may terminate and/or slow down a process. Enzymes are involved in metabolism they regulate various metabolic pathways. In insects and some animals natural enzyme inhibitors are produced and are used as defense system against predators. Majority of drugs to treat a number of chronic and/or life-threatening diseases are developed with a mechanism of action directed towards enzyme inhibition. Enzyme specificity and potency are the important factors considered while developing a drug. A high specificity and potency ensures that a drug will have few side effects and strong therapeutic effect. Also, enzyme inhibitors are used as diagnostic agent to screen various diseases.
Factors driving global demand for Enzyme Inhibitors are its wide applications in pharmaceutical, agrochemical industries. Restraining factors for enzyme inhibitor market is patent expiry of various drugs.
