Enzymes are large biological molecules responsible for the thousands of chemical interconversions that sustain life. They are highly selective catalysts, greatly accelerating both the rate and specificity of metabolic reactions, from the digestion of food to the synthesis of DNA. Most enzymes are proteins, although some catalytic RNA molecules have been identified. Enzymes adopt a specific three-dimensional structure, and may employ organic (e.g. biotin) and inorganic (e.g. magnesium ion) cofactors to assist in catalysis.
Enzymes are responsible for the following in addition to many more functions:
Digest food to a size capable of being absorbed into the blood
Rebuild food into tissue of muscle, bone, organs, glands, etc.
Work to store food in the liver and muscles for fuel later on
Attach iron to red blood cells
Eliminate carbon dioxide from the lungs
Attack waste material in the blood and prepare it for elimination
Change protein into sugar or fat
Change carbohydrate into fat
Change fat into carbohydrate
