How is the transition state of an enzyme-catalyzed reaction different from the transition state of the corresponding uncatalyzed reaction?



A. It has a higher free energy content
B. It has less chemical stability and is therefore more reactive
C. It is more similar to the conformation of the substrate, as a result of induced fit
D. It is energetically more stable, because it makes favorable interactions with the enzyme
E. It participates in the reaction by exchanging a proton with the substrate, in a process that is known as general acid-base catalysis
