Part of the book: The Biochemical Guide to Enzymes
Enzymes are multi-molecular, mostly protein catalysts that improve specific chemical reactions by lowering their activation energy. Almost all chemical reactions related to the functioning of living organisms, including viruses, require the participation of enzymes to achieve sufficient efficiency.
Keywords: enzymes, barley enzymes
