Though I understand from the definitions that mixed-type_inhibition_of_unireactant_enzymes_by_two_inhibitors is the specific case where the two inhibitors bind to the complex and the free enzyme with the same equilibrium constant, and its parent mixed-type_inhibition_of_irreversible_unireactant_enzymes_by_two_inhibitors is the same, but with possibly different equilibrium values, the *naming* scheme makes this unclear. Indeed, initially from the two names, they seem to be equivalent classes, as the child would inherit the "irreversible" of the parent, thus making the names essentially identical, and therefore causing confusion (in me :) ). Is there some way to name these more precisely, in a way that describes the differences rather than makes them sound the same?
