Competitive inhibitors are the substances or chemicals that interrupt other substrates from binding with the active sites on enzymes. Competitive inhibitors compete with other substrates that tend to bind on the active sites and in the presence of competitive inhibitors, very few active sites on enzymes are available for substrates. They possess a similar structure to the transition state of the natural substrate. Competitive inhibitors are used in order to reduce the rate of catalysis offered by the enzyme to the substrate. They do not affect the structure of the enzyme, so it can still catalyze the reaction on the substrate molecules that bind to the active sites. Since competitive inhibitors and substrates bind at the same site, the competitive inhibition offered by competitive inhibitors can be overcome by increasing the substrate concentration. Competitive inhibitors find applications in the diagnosis of various diseases in animals and humans such as cancer, hypercholesterolemia and liver disease in large animals. They are manufactured as therapeutic competitive inhibitors and protease competitive inhibitors and competitive inhibitors such as trypsin inhibitor are used as ingredients in the food industry.
The growth of the pharmaceutical and food industries is expected to drive the sales of competitive inhibitors in the near future. The rising concern regarding the treatment of diseases such as cancer is expected to create a platform for the demand growth of competitive inhibitors among various research laboratories. The application of competitive inhibitors in the diagnosis of animal diseases is expected to boost the sales of competitive inhibitors in the market, owing to the growing concerns regarding the protection and conservation of animals. The high prices of competitive inhibitors are expected to retard the growth of the competitive inhibitors market. The toxic nature of competitive inhibitors such as cyanide is expected to slow down the sales growth of competitive inhibitors in coming years.
