Enzymes -

These are biological catalysts that enhances the rate of reaction by lowering the activation energy.

- wherein

Eg. Maltose amylase, carbonic anhydrase,etc.

 

 

Lock and key hypothesis of enzyme action -

Enzymes molecules act like a lock whereas substrate acts like a key . Substrate fits in the active site of the enzyme and forms a complex which decompose to yield products

- wherein

 

Enzymes are most reactive at optimum temperature.
