Unformatted text preview: G. Do not directly enter reaction, remain unchanged, so can react with another molecule of same substrate. 3. Coenzymes, Cofactors A. Coenzymes 1. Organic molecules - vitamins 2. "Carrier" molecules - transfer electrons from one molecule to another. B. Cofactors 1. Inorganic molecules - metal ions 2. Completes structure of active site on enzyme so that it is complementary to combining site on substrate. 4. Grouping, Naming Enzymes A. Grouped - type chemical reaction they catalyze B. Named - type chemical reaction catalyzed, specific substrate on which they act. C. Names - end in "ase." 5. Two Groups Bacterial Enzymes A. Exoenzymes - excreted; break down large complex compounds into smaller ones that can cross the cell membrane. B. Endoenzymes - remain inside cell; involved in the production of energy and cell parts. 1 2...
