  • Enzyme Cofactor | They undergo chemical reactions

    The Role of an Enzyme Cofactor in Enzyme Kinetics In enzyme kinetics, a non-protein chemical compound known as an enzyme cofactor plays a critical role in the enzyme’s catalytic activity. Cofactors are like “helper molecules” that aid enzymes in biochemical transformations. Enzyme kinetics studies the rates at which cofactors are used to aid enzymes in […]

  • Characteristics of Enzymes | Factor in the stability of enzymes

    Characteristics of Enzymes Among the characteristics of enzymes is the complexity of their internal dynamic motions. The individual amino acid residues, groups of amino acid residues forming protein loops, and entire protein domains exhibit these motions. The resulting conformational ensemble consists of many slightly different states, which interconvert at equilibrium. Different states within an enzyme’s […]
