    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.

    An enzyme is basically a catalyst which enhance reaction rate of biological reactions. It do it by reducing activation energy. In addition to normal properties of catalyst, enzymes show stereo specificity (L and D form). And carry out reaction in biological system.
