Let's work together to get you ready for enzyme-related questions you might encounter on the TExES Life Science test. Our expert instructors, video lessons and practice quizzes are just what you need to help you recall the role of enzymes.

TExES Life Science: Enzymes - Chapter Summary

You're likely to encounter questions about enzymes on the TExES Life Science test. If you're feeling like you need a refresher on the subject, we can help you with that. Our chapter on enzymes contains brief video lessons that will guide you through all the relevant essentials. The videos are brief and succinct because we know you need to be efficient about your time management. You can easily fit the videos into small breaks throughout your day or save them all to watch right before bed or first thing in the morning. While short, the video lessons are still thorough in their review of topics like:

  • Enzyme function
  • Role of coenzymes and cofactors
  • Interactions of prosthetic groups
  • Regulation and inhibition of enzymatic reactions

Each of the lessons is followed by a short multiple-choice quiz. Be sure to complete these so you know how well you're retaining the information. You can contact our expert instructors if you have any burning questions.

Objectives of the TExES Life Science: Enzymes Chapter

If you're pursuing teaching certification or endorsement in Texas, you'll need to take the TExES Life Science test and we'd love to help you prepare. The test is computer-administered and consists of 100 multiple-choice questions divided into six domains. The second domain, Cell Structure and Processes, accounts for about 20% of the exam. It will, among other things, test you on your ability to analyze how the function of biomolecules, including enzymes, is related to structure and shape. It will also explain the role of enzymes in synthesis and the degradation of biomolecules like DNA, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and more. We have purposely tried to correlate our chapter topics, that you can read about in the chapter summary, with these test objectives.
