Enzymes: All About Them

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:

Substrate Specificity:

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
