During a biochemical reaction, an enzyme binds with a substrate to lower the activation energy of the reaction. This results to an increase in the reaction rate.

What chemical reaction is an enzyme?

The enzyme is a biochemical catalyst.

What happens to an enzyme after a biochemical reaction?

The enzyme is liberated free to repeat the action again. That is the beauty of enzymes.

What role does an enzyme play in a biochemical reaction?

An enzyme is a catalyst, and it speeds up the biochemical reaction. It does this by providing an alternate pathway for the reaction to occur, and this alternate pathway has a lower activation energy than the pathway in the absence of the enzyme.

What is the definition of enzymes?

Enzymes are proteins that are able to catalyze (i.e accelerate) biochemical reactions. During the course of a reaction, the enzyme is able to convert a substrate to a product but the enzyme does not get consumed in the reaction.

What is never destroyed or created in a chemical reaction?

An enzyme in a biochemical reaction fits this definition.

What is a statement that best describes an enzyme?

An enzyme is a chemical produced by a living organism which acts as a catalyst in a biochemical reaction.

What is the function of enymes?

Enzymes are biological catalysts. They speed up biochemical reaction. During the course of a reaction, the enzyme molecules do not get consumed. At the end of a reaction, the enzyme molecules are ready for another reaction. Enzymes are able to catalyze reactions by decreasing the free energy change (delta G) associated with a biochemical reaction. When the reactants have to go through a smaller free energy change, the products are formed faster.

What happens to an enzyme after the reaction is complete?

enzyme works as a catalyst before and after the reaction it is preserved

What does a biochemical reactions do?

A biochemical reaction will be a chemical reaction that is regulated by an enzyme or series of enzymes to turn some precursor into a usable (or voidable) chemical within a life system. An enzyme is a protein that helps to facilitate a chemical reaction. Often, enzymes will help by speeding up a reaction, although in the case of some rapid, exothermic reactions, the enzyme will limit the reaction to keep heat waste to a minimum.

An enzyme is a special kind of catalyst that works to do what?

An enzyme is a special kind of catalyst that works to speed up a specific biochemical reaction.

Protein involved in increasing the rate of chemical reaction?

If you are talking about a BIOchemical reaction, I think the protein you are looking for is called an enzyme.

What happens to the rate of enzyme reaction when you decrease the enzyme concentration?

below the required conc. of an enzyme decreases its rate of reaction

What does the enzyme do to the chemical bonds within the substrate And why?

enzyme catalyze the biochemical reactions by lowering their activation energy. An enzyme which take part in such reaction wont be lost or gained any chemical structure and it would be the same after the reaction.

Is an enzyme a bacteria?

No. It's a protein. Enzymes are not bacteria. Enzyme- a substance produced by living organism that acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction.
