There are two main models that explain the formation of the enzyme-substrate complex: the lock and key model and the induced fit model.

In the lock and key model, the enzyme has a region with a specific spatial conformation for the binding of the substrate. In the induced fit model, the binding of the substrate induces a change in the spatial configuration of the enzyme to make the substrate fit.
