Enzymes offer many benefits for our body. In fact without them, life would be impossible because they play an important role in catalzying reactions.
Catalysis refers t othe increase in reaction time without being consumed by the reaction.
An enzyme is just that.
Six Types of Enzyme Classes:
Substrates bind enzymes by:
Cofactors and Coenzymes:
A cofactor is a small molecule or ion required by an enzyme to function
Co-enzyme = cofactor that is a small organic molecule
Active enzymes with their appropriate cofactors are called holoenzymes
Inactive enzyme missing their cofactors are called apoenzymes
