Need help on chem 🥴
@Vixen Enzymes are biological catalysts that expedite reactions by lowering the activation energy required for the reaction to take place. The active site of an enzyme, which is a concrete region on the enzyme surface, binds to the reactants (substrate molecules) and brings them close together in the correct orientation for the reaction to occur. The enzyme-substrate intricate then undergoes a series of changes, leading to the formation of the product and the relinquishment of the enzyme. The structure of the enzyme is critical to its catalytic activity, as the active site must be precisely shaped to fit the substrate molecules. This shape is resolute by the sequence of amino acids that make up the enzyme, and any vicissitudes to this sequence can have a major impact on enzyme activity. Adscititiously, many enzymes require the presence of categorical cofactors or coenzymes, which are molecules required for the enzyme to function congruously. Overall, the structure of the enzyme is intimately linked to its catalytic activity and specificity for particular substrates. Hope that helps you, and I'm sorry for the late answer. I'm busy so I'm not able to carry this website, you know?
