CHAPTER 7 ENZYME KINETICS AND REGULATION
Enzymes are capable of increasing the catalytic rate of thermodynamically favored reactions.
The ability of an enzyme to do this is typically related to the amount of
CHAPTER 1 THE SCOPE OF BIOCHEMISTRY
Biochemistry is a field of science that attempts to define the structure, organization, and function of living
organisms in their chemical and molecular forms.
Biological processes of interest include
CHAPTER 2 - WEAK INTERACTONS IN BIOLOGY
1. Biomolecules are held together by a combination of covalent and non-covalent
interactions. The non-covalent interactions (hydrogen bonds, van der Waals, chargecharge) are continually made and broken
CHAPTER 4 PROTEIN THREE-DIMENSIONAL STRUCTURE
1. Proteins are comprised of monomeric subunits of amino acids linked together by a planar peptide
2. All 20 naturally occurring amino acids are L-isomers. Alternative arrangeme
CHAPTER 6 ENZYMES
1. Enzymes are catalysts which that mean they make thermodynamically favorable reactions faster.
The overall free energy value of the substrate molecules must be higher than the free energy value
of all the product molecules
