Enzymology is the branch of biochemistry in order to comprehend how enzymes functions. It is important to understand how they fold into their natural state and the link between structure and function. The particular class of proteins is known as discipline of enzymology. It also combines the disciplines of biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology, molecular genetics, and biophysics. Enzymology is the study of enzymes operates, how they govern catalysis, how they evolve, and how they might be restricted to provide therapies and the pseudoenzyme analysis area commend that certain enzymes have lost the capacity to perform biological catalysis over evolution and which is frequently reflected in their amino acid sequences and strange “pseudocatalytic” capabilities. Enzymes are catalysts that speed up physiological processes by increasing their rate or velocity. An enzyme aids each and every reaction that occurs within our body. Generally, most of the enzymes are mainly more active in cells.

The structure of the enzyme is determined by the amino acid sequence, which also reveals the enzyme’s catalytic activity. The direct amino acid chain that makes up enzymes gives birth to a three-dimensional structure. Enzyme catalysis is required for the majority of metabolic activities in the cell to proceed at speeds quick enough to support life. It is known that enzymes catalyse more than 5,000 different kinds of biological reactions. Ribozymes are catalytic RNA molecules are another type of biocatalyst. The growth, development, adaptability, and survival of the organism depend on these chemical processes, which are speed up by these proteins in a biological system. The living organism is severely impacted by the lack, build-up, or malfunction of an enzyme, some of which manifest as metabolic diseases. Enzymes are proteins that serve as catalysts in living cells, accelerating a certain chemical reaction’s pace within the cell. They make it possible for metabolic reactions and non-spontaneous chemical reactions that would ordinarily take too long in the moderate cellular environment to occur quickly and under control in live cells.

Clinical enzymology is the study of the characteristics and extension of enzymes in samples collected from cases in order to help in illness diagnosis and comprehension. To reinforce the bases upon which the clinical interpretation of such enzyme data depends, research in several areas of enzymology is conducted. Through diagnosis, prognosis, and response therapy evaluation and they offer insight into the progression of the disease.

Clinical enzymology has been demonstrated to be useful in diagnosis

Diagnostic uses of enzymes

• Serum glutamic oxaloacetate transferase is an enzyme that can indicate myocardial infarction or hepatocellular injury.
• Cholinesterase is an enzyme generally plays a part in the conduction of whim-whams impulses. The nephrotic pattern has high situations. Low situations are observed in acute contagious ails, anemias, and malnutrition. Several specifics beget a reduction in enzyme exertion.
• Acid phosphatase is a prostatic cancer tumour marker.

Therapeutic uses of enzymes

• A variety of medical diseases are treated with enzymes as remedial agents.
• Myocardial infarctions and pulmonary emboli are both treated with urokinase.
• Streptokinase is used for the dissolution of clot in myocardial infarction.
• Gastric achylia is treated with the help of the digestive enzymes renin and pepsin.
