Science / Biology / Enzymes: Protein molecules that act as catalysts in biochemical reactions.

Restriction Enzymes

Science / Biology / Restriction Enzymes: A series of enzymes that attach to DNA molecules at specific nucleotide sequences and cut both strands of DNA at those sites. A bacterial enzyme that cuts DNA at a specific recognition sequence. This MORE


Science / Biology / Coenzymes: Chemicals required by a number of enzymes for proper functioning; also known as enzyme cofactors. MORE


Science / Genetics / Transferase: Enzymes that catalyze the transfer of functional groups between donor and acceptor molecules. MORE


Science / Genetics / Isoenzyme: An enzyme performing the same function as another enzyme but having a different set of amino acids. The two enzymes may function at different speeds. MORE

Macrorestriction Map

Science / Genetics / Macrorestriction Map: Map depicting the order of and distance between sites at which restriction enzymes cleave chromosomes. MORE

Polymerase (DNA Or RNA)

Science / Genetics / Polymerase (DNA Or RNA): Enzymes that catalyze the synthesis of nucleic acids on preexisting nucleic acid templates, assembling rna from ribonucleotides or dna from deoxyribonucleotides. MORE
