The lock-and-key model refers to the way in which a substrate binds to an enzyme's active site. Similar to how a key has to be the correct one for a lock, no reaction takes place if an incorrect substrate tries to bind.

The enzyme-substrate complex forms when a substrate binds to the active site of an enzyme, according to the University of California at Davis. The complex exists before the enzyme converts the substrate into a product.
