In 1878, German psychologist WINHELM KUHNE first term the term enzyme. Enzyme are glabularprateins
, like all proteins, enzyme are made
a long linear chairs of amino acid That fald
to produce a three dimensional molecule.
. Almost all enzyme are protinsthey are made of amino acid
. Most enzyme reaction rates are millions of time faster than those comparable uncatalyzedreaction as with all catalysts. Enzyme are natconsumed by reactions they catalyze.
. Enzymes are usually very specific for the types of reaction and for the nature of their substrates
Enzyme production can be enhanced or diminished by a cell according to needs. Enzyems activity can also be regulated by inhibitiorsand activator.
. Only a small portion of enzyme molecules is directly involved in catalysis. This catalytic region is known as active site it recognizes and binds substrate and then carries out reaction.
