How Enzymes speed up the chemical reactions?​

Enzymes are complex biological molecules which catalyze or greatly speeds up the rate at which a chemical reaction will occur. They are primarily proteins, but some enzymes, called ribozymes, are made of RNA. The key concept behind the speeding up of a chemical reaction by an enzyme is that it reduces the activation energy required for a reaction. In doing so, it speeds up the reaction.  Continue reading How Enzymes speed up the chemical reactions?​
