Analysis of Enzyme Efficiency

by Rojan Varghese


Submitted : Spring 2012

Enzymes are biological catalysts essential for enhancing many of the reactions the human body needs to conduct in order to stay alive. In this paper we examine different enzymes that have a specificity constant that approaches the diffusion-controlled limit to determine which enzymes are most useful to the prolonging of life. This is then compared to the molecular weights of the enzymes to determine any correlation between these two factors.
