Question: 1
Describe metabolism and its types. What is role of enzymes in metabolism?
Answer: 1
Definition Metabolism is the set of biochemical reactions that occur in living organisms in order to maintain life. Explanation of term 'Metabolism' The term metabolism is derived from a Greek word meaning "change". The concept of metabolism was first of all given by Ibn-e-Na-fees, who stated that "the body and its parts are always undergoing change" importance These processes allow organisms to grow and reproduce, maintain their structures and respond to their environments. Biochemical reactions in living organisms are essentially energy transfers. Types It is of two types (i) Anabolisin Anabolism includes the biochemical reactions in which larger molecules are synthesized. e.g., Photosynthesis and assimilation. Energy is utilized in anabolism. Catholicism Catholicism includes the biochemical reactions in which larger molecules are broken down. e.g., respiration and digestion of food. Energy is released in Catholicism Role of Enzymes during Metabolism During metabolism, chemicals are transformed from one form to the other by enzymes. Enzymes are crucial to metabolism because they act as bio-catalysts and speed up and regulate the metabolic pathways.
Question: 2
Define enzymes. Explain enzymatic action.
Answer: 2
Question: 3
Describe characteristics of Enzymes.
Answer: 3
Introduction In 1878, German physiologist Winhelm Kuhne first used the term enzyme. Enzymes are globular proteins and are made of long, linear chains of amino acids that fold to produce a three dimensional molecule. Characteristics of Enzymes in nature (i) All enzymes are protein Almost all enzymes are proteins i.e. they are made of amino acids. (ii) Increase the rate of reaction The most enzymes reaction rates are millions of times faster than those of comparable uncatalysed reactions. (iii) Not consumed by reaction As with all catalysts, enzymes are not consumed by the reactions they catalyze. (iv) Enzymes are specific Enzymes are usually very specific for the type of reaction and for the nature of their substrates. (v) Active sites Only a small portion of enzyme molecule is directly involved in catalysis. This catalytic region is known as active- site. It recognizes and binds substrate, and then carries out the reaction. (vi) Enzymes activity can be regulated Enzyme production can be enhanced or diminished by a cell according to needs. Enzyme activity can also be regulated by inhibitors and activators. (vii) Co factors Some enzymes do not need any additional component to work. However, others require non protein molecules or ions called co factors. Cofactors can be either inorganic (e.g. metal ions) or organic (e.g. flavin and heme). a) Prosthetic groups If organic co factors are tightly bound to enzyme, they are called prosthetic groups. b) Co-enzymes If organic co-factors are loosely attached with enzyme, they are called co-enzymes. Co-enzymes transport chemical groups from one enzyme to another. Some important co¬enzymes are vitamins (e.g. riboflavin, thiamine and folic acid). (viii) Enzymes can work together in a specific order Several enzymes can work together in a specific order, creating metabolic pathways. In a metabolic pathway, one enzyme takes the product of another enzyme as a substrate. After the reaction, the product is then passed on to the next enzyme. Uses of enzymes Enzymes are extensively used in different industries for fast chemical reactions. For example i) Food Industry Enzymes that break starch into simple sugars are used in the production of white bread, buns etc. ii) Brewing industry Enzymes break starch and proteins. The products are used by yeast for fermentation (to produce alcohol). Enzymes break starch to lower its viscosity that aids in making paper. iii) Pro tease enzymes are used for the removal of protein stains from clothes. Amylase enzymes are used in dish washing to remove resistant starch residues.

Every enzyme work at its maximum rate at its maximum rate at a specific temperature called as the optimum temperature for that enzyme<gwmw class="ginger-module-highlighter-mistake-type-6" id="gwmw-15859841835365843844034"> .</gwmw>When <gwmw class="ginger-module-highlighter-mistake-type-3" id="gwmw-15859841835360479778652">temperature</gwmw> rises to a certain limit heat adds in the activation energy and also provides kinetic energy for the reaction so reaction are accelerated rises to a certain limit heat adds in the activation heat energy increases the vibration of atoms of enzyme and the globular structure of enzyme is lost.
