Question

what are the main charcteristics of an enzyme other than that it breaks down food into smaller molecules?


Solution

Apart from its main function as mentioned in question some other characteristics are
  1. Enzymes are the protein machines that perform the day-to-day functions within cells. They deliver packages from one part of the cell to another. They pull chromosomes apart when the cell undergoes mitosis.
  2. Enzymes are also required to make ATP, however. The main enzyme that produces ATP is called ATP Synthase
