In this study, the kinetics of inhibition of polyphenol oxidase by L-cysteine has been investigated. The inhibition of tobacco polyphenol oxidase was studied using the progress-of-substrate-reaction method proposed by Tsou, following the substrate reaction during irreversible inhibition of the enzyme activity. Analysis of the inhibition kinetics shows that inhibition occurs by an irreversible and non-complexation reaction. The microscopic rate constants were determined for reaction of the inhibitor both with the free enzyme and with the enzyme-substrate complex. The results show that the presence of the substrate has a significant protective effect of the enzyme against inactivation by L-cysteine.
