The enzyme inhibition is valuable in the regulation of the enzyme activity. It has many applications, which include the drug design to target an enzyme. In the present review, we focus on the inhibition of different enzymes such as glycosidases, arylsulfatases and others by synthetic inhibitors or drugs. This provides the strategy that combines the inhibitory and therapeutic mode of action of the confirmed inhibitors.
