Schematic illustration of free energy profile for an enzymatic reaction. Protein dynamics can influence reaction rates in two possible ways; by altering height of the activation free energy barrier (ΔG) and transmission coefficient (κ). k B is the Boltzmann's constant, T is the temperature, h is the Planck's constant and k TST represents the transition state theory reaction rate.
