True: enzymes are proteins, however all of the body is built up of proteins - your hair for example is made from proteins, however your hair is definitely not an enzyme.

Enzymes are proteins. There is a saying that "all enzymes are proteins but all proteins are not enzymes".


No. All enzymes are proteins but not all proteins are enzymes. Muscle tissue is made of protein but it is not made of enzymes.


Enzymes are proteins but not all proteins are enzymes.


That statement is false. All enzymes are proteins. However, the inverse is true, as not all proteins are enzymes.


Enzymes are proteins, which are comprised of chains of amino acids. All enzymes are proteins (but not all proteins are enzymes)


No, there are structural proteins, functional proteins [enzymes] and regulatory proteins. Are all enzymes proteins? Yes. Further, many proteins are closely associated with Rnas.


Some proteins do serve as enzymes, but certainly not all proteins.


All enzymes are proteins (but not all proteins are enzymes).


No, nucleic acids are not enzymes. Nucleic acids are made up of nucleotides where as enzymes are proteins, but all proteins are not enzymes.


They are made up of proteins. They are globular proteins


All Enzymes are composed of, and from, Proteins.


Yes, all enzymes are proteins that catalyze, or speed up, chemical reactions in the body.


Enzymes are proteins, and all proteins are made of amino acids.


Yes. Nearly all enzymes are proteins, and proteins are organic compounds.


They are type of proteins. They are globular proteins


all protein are enzyme but not all enzymes are proteins. For eg. ribonuclease etc



All enzymes are specialized proteins, and enzymes are never products or reagents of the reaction in question.


Because some enzymes are not proteins , e,g, ribozymes .


No, it most be carefully note that all enzymes are mostly proteins and not all proteins are enzymes. Enzymes carry out the catalysis of biochemical reactions in and out of the cells. there are different non enzymatic structural and functional proteins they do have important roles such as hormones, structural proteins such as collagen etc.


They are made up of proteins. Amino acids build them


It's true that almost all enzymes are proteins but not all of them are proteins.some rna can act as enzyme e.g. Ribozyme


Yes, all enzymes are proteins. But if you search for the types of proteins , enzymes are not a type


Enzymes are proteins and all proteins are coded for and produced by the nucleus/ribosomes.


Enzymes are bimolecular catalysts. Almost all known enzymes are proteins.
