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

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


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


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 bimolecular catalysts. Almost all known enzymes are proteins.


no. this is impossible as protease enzymes decompose protein


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


Almost all enzymes are proteins; there are only a few exceptions to this rule, including certain kinds of RNA. Enzymes are necessary for important biological processes necessary for life, including digestion.


Enzymes are proteins but not all proteins are 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.


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


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.



They are made up of proteins. They are globular 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 type of proteins. They are globular proteins


Pepsinogen is an inactive form of the digestive enzyme pepsin. Almost all enzymes are proteins, and proteins are organic macromolecules.


There are several types of non-protein catalysts, which are also called enzymes. The biggest group are RNA ribozymes, along with some lipid-modified proteins.


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


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


All Enzymes are composed of, and from, Proteins.


Almost all enzymes are proteins, often decorated with carbohydrate side chains and/or enclosing a metallic ion.A few enzymes are short RNAs.


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