Function of Enzymes: Substrate, Active Site & Activation Energy

1. Function of Enzymes: Substrate, Active Site & Activation Energy

In this lesson, we'll learn how enzymes function to lower the activation energy of a chemical reaction. Enzymes bind to their substrates to perform all kinds of important and essential cellular processes, as well as processes that help you enjoy a slice of pizza!

Enzyme Activity & Inhibition: Structure, Substrates, pH & Temperature

2. Enzyme Activity & Inhibition: Structure, Substrates, pH & Temperature

Enzymes appreciate the right working conditions. Can you blame them? We all work best in the correct environment. In this lesson, we'll learn how substrate concentration, temperature, and pH affect enzyme activity and structure.

Coenzymes, Cofactors & Prosthetic Groups: Function and Interactions

3. Coenzymes, Cofactors & Prosthetic Groups: Function and Interactions

Some enzymes require helpers to recognize a substrate or complete a reaction. These helpers include cofactors, coenzymes, and prosthetic groups, which are required for some enzymes' functions.

Enzymatic Reactions: Inhibition and Regulation

4. Enzymatic Reactions: Inhibition and Regulation

Enzymes are generally not allowed to run uncontrolled in a cell. While they are useful in catalyzing reactions, there is a time and place for everything. In this lesson, we'll discuss enzyme activators and inhibitors that regulate these reactions positively and negatively, respectively.

Coenzyme: Definition & Function

5. Coenzyme: Definition & Function

This lesson defines what a coenzyme is and how it relates to enzymes. It also discusses the functions of a coenzyme and gives some information as to where coenzymes can be found.
