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

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

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.

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

They are made up of proteins. They are globular proteins

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 proteins which act as catalysts for various reactions that occur in cells. (A catalyst speeds up a reaction without being permanently altered itself). Some proteins function in other ways like transporting substances across the cell membrane or providing structure. Therefore, all enzymes are proteins but not all proteins are enzymes. Uhm Ribozymes are enzymes that are not protein

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

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.

I would say, specially modified proteins.

Proteins are not enzymes. Enzymes are protein,tertiary proteins

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 made up of proteins. Amino acids build them

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.

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

Proteins that are catalysts are called enzymes. A majority of enzymes are proteins, though not all.

Yes, all enzymes are proteins. But if you search for the types of proteins , enzymes are not a type
