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

To what group of biomolecules do enzymes belong to?

Enzymes can be classified as either simple enzymes or complex enzymes. 1) Simple enzymes are predominantly made up of proteins. 2) Complex enzymes are enzymes that require cofactors like iron or zinc ions to function properly.

Enzymes are a group of very specific catalists in biological reactions at moderate temperatures.

Yes. Phosphorylation refers to the attachment or transfer of a phosphate group to a molecule. This molecule could either be a chemical species or a protein. Enzymes (which are essentially proteins) can also be phopsphorylated. Kinases are enzymes that add a phosphate group to other proteins and enzymes.

enzymes consist of proteins and proteins consist of amino acids that connect to each other by peptide bonds.

I believe that you are referring to Enzymes.

The proteins. Enzymes are constructed from chains of amino acids and go through the usual four stages of protein assembly.

The prosthetic groups of enzymes are organic, not inorganic

An aminotransaminase is another word for an aminotransferase - any of a group of enzymes which catalyze transmination.

Proteins. Answer obtained from biology class.

The enzymes a group of proteins secreted by or into the digestive tract and help to act on the ingested food to break it down to simpler compounds for absorption and assimilation. Some enzymes just speed up the work of other enzymes and are said to have catalytic effect. The enzymes may act as pro-enzymes. The enzymes are not always breaking down complex food particles but some also join simpler particles to make complex and storable food or tissue.

Enzymes are (proteineous) bio-catalysts. They speed up reactions at normal temperatures and most of them are quite specific for one (or one group of) reaction(s).

lipase is a general name for group of enzymes, which are degrades lipids. I think you are typed wrongly peptitate instead of peptidase, which are the enzymes involves in peptide cleavage.

Coenzymes has a complex structure. They are a group of co-factors that are tightly or loosely attached to enzymes.

Enzymes are proteins that help control chemical reactions.
