Almost all bio-chemical reactions taking place in the cells of the living organism are catalyzed by enzymes.

For Example: The conversion of Glucose to Glucose-6-Phosphate (1st Reaction of Glycolysis) is catalyzed by the enzyme hexokinase or glucokinase.

Glucose + ATP ---> Glucose-6-Phosphate + ADP

Almost all reaction in cells are enzymatic controlled, or I would rather not say controlled but 'driven' or 'made possible'. Enzymatic reaction are controled by e.g. temperature, pH, concentration, ions, activating and inactivating complexes, etc. but not by themselves as substance.



They act as a catalyst and change the speed of reactions within an organism (helping to maintain homeostasis)


what are some examples of a reversible reaction that occurs in the living organism?


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.


This is a reaction which occur in a living organism.


An enzyme is a substance produced by a living organism that acts as a catalyst to bring about a reaction. Coenzymes are non protein compounds that are necessary for the functioning of an enzymes.


Enzymes act as catalysts. They speed up the reaction time.


Enzymes act as catalysts. They speed up the reaction time.


an enzyme is a substance produced by a living organism that acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction and they are important to cells because enzymes make everything work, they are made up of proteins and are used in almost every kind of reaction in the body hope this helps!!


Enzymes act as catalysts. They speed up the reaction time.


Enzymes are needed to lower the activation energy so that the reaction can occur at temperatures at which living things can survive.


they help destroy and speed up the chemical reaction on a living thing


An enzyme works to speed up chemical reactions in a living organism.





A catalyst. Or if made by a living organism an enzyme.


Light emitted from living organism as a result of naturally occurring chemical reaction inside the organism.


Enzymes reduce the amount of activation energy required to start a chemical reaction.


No, fire is not "alive". It is a chemical reaction.


the basic difference between a inoganic catalyst and a biological catalyst is the origin name living compound and non-living compound. Explaination Living compound are the compund produced by living organism like spirogara, virus, bateria, protozoa, yeast ect. The compound which is secerated by the above organism. Yes they are chemical at the bottom level they can be called bio-organic compound, enzymes, hormons, venoms ect in the different sector of medicine, dyes Inorganic catalyst are the non living compunds there are not produced by any organism but they are prepared in the lab with the chemical reaction. They are use to improve the rate of reaction not by taking part in reaction or take part in the reaction but comes out at the orginal form at the end of the reaction.


The molecules of enzymes may regulate the chemical reactions in living bodies.


Enzyme reaction rates can be decreased by various types of enzyme inhibitors. ... Enzymes serve a wide variety of functions inside living organisms


Enzymes are a type of protein. Without them, reactions would be so slow it would kill a living organism. They play a big part in digestion and they have a lot to do with Protiens.
