Enzymes bind to specific substrates. The substrate fits into the enzyme at a location on the enzyme called the active site.
Some enzymes break down substrates into smaller molecules.
Other enzymes link two or molecules into larger or different molecules.
There are SO MANY different enzyme-substrate reactions, each playing a specific & vital role in managing the processes in life.
When all is said and done, enzymes make biological reactions happen faster.
