Enzymes and Metabolism

  • Without enzymes, life wouldn't be possible—because enzymes catalyze the metabolic reactions in our bodies.

  • Most enzymes are proteins, and their function is directly related to their structure.

  • We’ll find out that they not only speed reactions up, but they do so with extreme specificity.

  • We'll also explore enzyme kinetics. Enzyme kinetics is the study of enzyme-catalyzed reaction rates.
