yes. an enzym IS a protein.
Because the enzyme salivary amylase lacks protein.
All Enzyme are proteins enzymes act as catalyst
No. They are substrate specific.
4) lack protein
The type of molecule that is an enzyme is a protein molecule.
An enzyme is a protein
Enzymes dont digest proteins they act as cataylst to break down the protein, there is a difference. :D As one enzyme is specifc to one type of protein, there are a wide variety of them, For example. Amylose (in out saliva) is catalyst by amylase the enzyme. Lactose in dairy is cataylsed by the enzyme lactase. And Cellulose (in plant cell walls) is catalysted by Celluase.
Pepsin) whereas other enzymes are composed of both protein part and non-protein part. The complete enzyme molecule (with both protein part and non-protein part) is known as holo-enzyme. The protein part is known as Apo-enzyme Non- protein part may be co-factor or co-enzyme
There are protein substrates, but not all substrates are proteins. Lipid, carbohydrates, nucleic acids can also act as substrates to its specific enzyme. but enzyme can be only proteins and not Lipid, carbohydrate.
RuBisCO is the most common protein on Earth. This protein is an enzyme.
Yes,it is an example of non protein enzyme.
