Fig. 10: Noncompetitive Inhibition with Allosteric Enzymes

When the end product (inhibitor) of a pathway combines with the allosteric site of the enzyme, this alters the active site of the enzyme so it can no longer bind to the starting substrate of the pathway. This blocks production of the end product.
