what can you do to regain the activity of the enzyme?

You have added an irreversible inhibitor to a sample of enzyme and substrate. At this point, the reaction has stopped completely.

What can you do to regain the activity of the enzyme?

Removing the irreversible inhibitor should get the reaction working again.

The enzyme is inactive at this point. New enzyme must be added to regain enzyme activity.

Adding more substrate will increase the rate of reaction.

Adding more inhibitor should get the reaction up to speed again.

Because they bind directly to the active site by covalent bonds, irreversible inhibitors permanently render an enzyme inactive. Some drugs are irreversible inhibitors, including the antibiotic penicillin (which inhibits an enzyme involved in bacterial cell-wall synthesis) and aspirin (which inhibits cyclooxygenase-2, the enzyme involved in the inflammatory reaction).
