What Are Enzymes Made of?

Enzymes are formed of amino acids. 100-1000 amino acids are stringed together in a specific and unique order when an enzyme is formed. The chain of amino acids is folded into a unique shape that allows the enzymes to carry out specific chemical reactions. For eg., maltose is made of two glucose molecules linked together The shape of maltase is such that it can break free the glucose molecules.
