Answer to Question #23345 in Biochemistry for Rabiya
name some of the vivo biochemical reaction(other than digestion) catalyzed by enzymes.
Enzymes catalyse the numerous methabolic reactions of hydrocarbonates, lipids and proteins and nucleic acids in vivo. For instance, peptidyl transferase reaction: the amino (NH2) group of the aminoacyl-tRNA, which contains the new amino acid, attacks the ester linkage of peptidyl-tRNA (contained within the P site), which contains the last amino acid of the growing chain, forming a new peptide bond. This reaction is catalyzed by peptidyl transferase. Glycogen phosphorylase catalyzes the rate-limiting step in glycogenolysis in animals by releasing glucose-1-phosphate from the terminal alpha-1,4-glycosidic bond. Phospholipase is an enzyme that hydrolyzes phospholipids into fatty acids and other lipophilic substances.
