Every second inside every living cell, thousands of chemical reactions are taking place. These reactions constitute the essential tasks of life such as metabolism, protein synthesis, cell renewal and growth.
Learn how the proteins called enzymes work to maintain the rate of these reactions at a life-sustaining level in this video hosted by PDB-101.
