Example of a useful biochemical reaction:   Peptide bond hydrolysis . This reaction is spontaneous ( G < 0). But it takes years without a catalyst.

Ways to increase reaction rates of slow reactions:       1) increase the temperature (not very practical          for living things).       2) use an  enzyme  as a catalyst to lower the            activation energy of a reaction.

Protease  - cleaves peptide bonds (example = chymotrypsin). Transferase  - transfers a functional group.     Isomerase  - converts one isomer to another. Ligase  - Joins 2 molecules together.  Example:  DNA ligase.      etc. Some classes of enzymes
