61. ANABOLIC REACTIONS Any chemical reaction that combines simple molecules to build more-complex molecules 62. Catabolic reactions Any chemical reaction that breaks down complex molecules into simpler molecules. 63. Catalysis The process of speeding up the rate of a chemical reaction (e.g., by enzymes). 64. Macronutrients Nutrients required in large amounts called macronutrients , including carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. 65. Malnutrition The medical condition resulting from the lack of any essential nutrient in the diet. Malnutrition is often, but not always, associated with starvation 66. Enzymes Are proteins that accelerate the rate of chemical reactions. 67. Which reaction would have the lowest activation energy for an enzyme that binds its substrate only in the presence of a cofactor? Substrate + Enzyme + Cofactor Product

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
