Part of the book: The Biochemical Guide to Enzymes


Dehydrogenases are a group of proteins that act as a catalyst, which means that by influencing the reaction, they do not change the composition of the final mixture or the equilibrium constant, but only accelerate the equilibrium state of the system by lowering the activation energy value.

Keywords: dehydrogenases, Krebs cycle, biochemistry
