At Kimball's Biology Pages, check out the section on lysozyme and its mechanism of action at
 http://www.ultranet.com/~jkimball/BiologyPages/E/Enzymes.html
and then see the lysozyme Chime structure by Will McClure at Carnegie Mellon University
http://www.bio.cmu.edu/Courses/BiochemMols/BuildBlocks/lysozyme.html
See an illustrated discussion of the chymotrypsin mechanism by Mark Bishop of MPC at

Go to the Interactive Biochemistry Pages at the University of Virginia,
 http://cti.itc.virginia.edu/~cmg/Demo/molecule.html 
and look at the tutorials on
HIV-1 Protease,
P53-A Tumor Suppressor Protein
, and
