Enzymum (Graece ἔνζυμον) est molecula proteini, quod reactionem chemicam et biologicam catalizat activando aut reprimendo. Enzyma, cum proteina sunt, ex acidis aminicis componuntur. Funguntur ut sequitur: substratum (eductum / educta) + enzymum → complexus enzymi et substrati → producta + enzymum.

Enzymum nomine purino-nucleoside-phosphorylasis (PNP)

De consuetudine enzymi nomen functionem suam vel substratum suum describit.

Reactio chemicaRecensere

  Commentatio principalis: Reactio chemica

Omnibus organismis perncesse sunt substantiae chemiciae, quae eis structura, functio, vita dant. Imprimis vitae virtutes mutationibus perpetuis pendent. Tamen tales mutationes gubernationes requirunt, in parte per gubernationem celeritatem reactionum chemicorum.

CatalysisRecensere

  Commentatio principalis: Catalysis

Enzymorum functio cum catalysis notione coniuncta videtur. Catalysis decursum reactionis chemicae celeritate aucta currere significat. Enyzum ipsum, hic catalysta dictum in reactione neque mutatur neque consumitur. Eo modo quodque enzymum catalysis multorum reactionum suorum perficere solet.

Aminoacida, proteina, enzymaRecensere

Unitates enzymorum basales sunt aminoacida, quorum in organismis vivis viginti nota sunt. Gubernatione ADN aminoacida ad catenas coniunguntur, ita proteina formantes. Haec proteina, oneris electricis singularum aminoacidorum ordinem specialem accipiunt. Si ordo haec functionem certam ostendat, quae celeritatem aliarum reactionum chemicarum augeat, proteinum enzymum nominatur.

Nominum conventionesRecensere

Saepe enzymi nomen de substrato eius vel reactione catalysata derivatur, ut lactasis (catalysis reactionis lactosi (substrati ex saccaridis galactoso et glucoso composito) disccessionis). Ab anno 1955 Internationalis Unio Biochemiae Molecularisque Biologiae (IUBMB) nomenclatura enzymorum numeris EC (enzymorum commissionis) excogitabat amplificabatque. Exempla sunt:
