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 type of proteins. They are globular proteins

Yes most of the enzymes are proteins. There are a few RNA enzymes known as ribozymes exist. Proteins are all coded in DNA in the nucleus.

Enzymes are proteins in most cases.

Enzymes are proteins but not all proteins are enzymes.

Proteins are not enzymes. Enzymes are protein,tertiary proteins

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

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

Yes enzymes are proteins. Enzymes catalyze the biochemical reaction of cells such as reactions of glycolyis or digestion of lipids. Like other proteins, enzymes also coded in the DNA.

Protease enzymes breakdown proteins. Enzymes are also proteins

All enzymes are macromolecules called proteins.

Most enzymes are classified as proteins. However, there are some enzymes that are not classified as proteins such as ribozymes (nucleic acids) and vitamins (coenzymes).

No, most enzymes are proteins, some of which are "decorated" with sugars. A few enzymes are composed of RNA.

They are made up of proteins. They are globular proteins

Enzymes are made up of proteins.

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, 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.

No, enzymes are catalyst proteins.

We have to clearly understand the concept that enzymes are actually, chemically proteins. There are enzymes that are involved in proteins production (peptidyl synthetase), lipid or nucleic acid formation. So a protein can help in forming other protein or enzymes. Most important thing is, all proteins are coded in DNA.

The enzymes in the food you eat are proteins. So most will be digested just like any other proteins.

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

No. Enzymes are proteins.

No, enzymes are proteins.

No. Enzymes are proteins.
