How Enzymes Catalyze Reactions
This clip focuses on how enzymes catalyze reactions, and also provides the chemical equation for an enzyme-catalyzed reaction. The clip notes that enzymes are not consumed in the reaction, that only the rate is affected, not the equilibrium. The clip also examines enzyme-substrate interaction, explaining that enzymes lower the reaction barrier. Finally, the clip looks at the environmental effects of enzyme activity.
