Journal Title:Acta Scientific Cancer Biology
An enzyme is a special biological molecule that activates and
controls (catalyzes) all metabolic processes in the cell. Each en-
zyme per process, independent and unique. Based on these prop-
erties, enzymes are used for different purposes. For example, if we
want to stop or control a certain process, we can inactivate a spe-
cific enzyme. There are some difficulties when we do this work are:
• Find the right enzyme and
• Find a way to inactivate the enzyme.
To date, science has known hundreds of thousands of different
enzymes involved in hundreds of thousands of different biochemi-
cal reactions. Enzymes are divided into three categories: pure pro-
tein, cofactor enzyme and coenzyme.
