induced enzyme

induced enzyme
inducible enzyme an enzyme whose production can be stimulated by another compound, often a substrate or a structurally related compound (inducer). The inducers studied first were substrates whose utilization thus became possible; hence these enzymes were known earlier as adaptive enzymes. Cf. constitutive e.
