Today we are looking at coenzymes and cofactors: non-proteins that are needed in order for some enzymes to be able to catalyse their reaction. Coenzymes Coenzymes are … Read more

A molecule is two or more atoms bound together, and many ions that have important functions in the body are just single atoms that have gained or lost electrons and have an electric charge. But they come under the biological molecules topic … Read more
