[Greek hgem (both: biochemistry, U. of Wisconsin-Madison) examine the chemical mechanisms of enzymatic catalysis catalysis
Modification (usually acceleration) of a chemical reaction rate by addition of a catalyst, which combines with the reactants but is ultimately regenerated so that its amount remains unchanged and the chemical equilibrium of the conditions of the reaction is not . After reviewing the fundamentals of the science, they focus on specific types of enzymatic reactions, discussing the underlying chemistry and providing brief case studies exemplifying enzymes in that particular class of enzymes. Among these reactions and classes are isomerization isomerization /isom·er·iza·tion/ (i-som?er-i-za´shun) the process whereby any isomer is converted into another isomer, usually requiring special conditions of temperature, pressure, or catalysts. , addition and elimination, nitrogen and sulfur tranferases, oxidoreductases, and complex enzymes. Touches of color not of the white race; - commonly meaning, esp. in the United States, of negro blood, pure or mixed.
