Biocatalysts concept is introduced and the protein nature and properties of the enzyme is studied. Kinetic aspects for understanding the role of enzymes in biological processes are discussed. Changes in enzyme activity are presented, considering the influence of the different factors that affect it, such as pH and temperature, and especially for inhibitors and their different types.
The regulation of enzyme activity by covalent modification alostórica modulation explained enzyme.
Isozyme concept and its role in the regulation of metabolism is also introduced.
The existence of multienzyme complexes arises from the advantages of the channeling of substrates, both with respect to flows, such as the regulation of metabolic pathways.
