    Enzymes are proteins which catalyze all biochemical reactions. Besides their importance as biologic catalysts, they have many industrial and medical uses. Presence of an enzyme and its concentration in a biologic compartment, determines the capability of such compartment to carry out a biochemical reaction and the speed it has.
