Used to describe some protein , especially an enzyme , in which a compound combines with a site on the protein other than the active site . This may result in a conformational change at the active site so that the normal substrate cannot bind to it. The allosteric property is useful in the regulation of enzyme activity.

2. Allosteric enzyme
A regulatory enzyme whose activity is modified by the noncovalent binding of a particular metabolite at a site (the allosteric site) other than the active site.
