Structure of Enzymes

In this video, we start looking at enzymes. First I give you some examples of enzymes and explain the difference between intracellular and extracellular enzymes. I then look at the structure of enzymes and discuss the function of the active site and the enzyme-substrate complex. Finally, I describe the effect of enzymes on the activation energy of a reaction and how this increases the reaction rate.
