What are Enzymes

Enzymes are proteins and catalysts. Enzymes act as the driving force to speed up how cells respond to chemicals. Thousands of diverse enzymes are contained in cells, and individual enzymes or units of enzymes have different jobs as they communicate within cells (Ophardt, 2003).

Characteristics of Enzymes

Enzymes boost significantly the timing of how quickly chemicals respond, but even though the enzymes have done their work, their properties remain the same. The enzyme is not changed or modified by the activity. Enzymes will impact the reaction rate without changing chemical balanced between the reactant and product (Hereditary fructose intolerance, 2011).
