NCLEX Review: Enzymes

What are enzymes? Enzymes are highly selective catalysts that greatly accelerate the rate of reactions. They speed up how quickly a reaction takes place. Most enzymes are proteins, but some catalytic RNA molecules have been found. Let’s discuss how enzymatic reactions work as you study for the NCLEX exam. This NCLEX review video will cover what happens to enzymes during reactions and how enzymes work to lower the activation energy of a reaction. Each enzyme will only bind with specific substrates. We will give examples of what it means to say that a substrate fits with its active site and review what can affect enzymes.
