For this week’s discussion, I would like for you to try to find an example of benefit or harm to life that hinges on an enzyme. For example, some diseases are the result of an underproduction or overproduction of a vital enzyme. Also, some substances that are considered poisons or pollutants do their harm by interfering with the function of a vital enzyme. Some medicines work by inhibiting certain enzymes. In your personal post, identify the enzyme, the important role it plays, and how its action can be disrupted. Post your personal response to this discussion by clicking on “start a new thread”.
