enzyme

(Variation and inheritance) proteins which catalyse or speed up chemical reactions inside our bodies. Enzymes are a vital in chemical digestion of food in the gut

enzyme

(Learning Modules / Biology / DNA / Glossary) Proteins which speed up biochemical reactions. Without enzymes life processes would be very slow!

ENZYME

A protein that facilitates chemical reactions without itself being changed in the process.

Enzyme

An enzyme is a macromolecule, usually a protein, that functions as a (bio) catalyst by increasing the reaction rate. In general, an enzyme catalyzes only one reaction type (reaction selectivity) and operates on only one type of substrate (substrate selectivity). Substrate molecules are transformed at the same site (regioselectivity) and only one o...

Enzyme

Enzymes z are macromolecular biological catalysts. They are responsible for thousands of metabolic processes that sustain life. Enzymes are highly selective catalysts, greatly accelerating both the rate and specificity of metabolic reactions, from the digestion of food to the synthesis of DNA. Most enzymes are proteins, although some catalytic RNA...

enzyme

Protein or protein-based molecules that speed up chemical reactions occurring in living things. Enzymes act as catalysts for a single reaction, converting a specific set of reactants (called substrates) into specific products. Without enzymes life as we know it would be impossible.

enzyme

(en´zīm) any protein that acts as a catalyst, increasing the rate at which a chemical reaction occurs; there are at least 10,000 in the human body. At body temperature, very few biochemical reactions proceed at a significant rate without the presence of an enzyme. Like other catalysts, enzymes do not control the di...

enzyme

(Gk: en=into; zyme to leaven/layer) a protein catalyst made by living cells, and helping to carry out a chemical process or reaction, without being consumed by it. Enzymes are so critical to the chemical reactions within cells that these would not occur without them. Enzymes can be likened to chemical ratchets, levering heat energy (Brownian moveme...
