Enzymes are Catalysts that drive reaction rates forward. Most, but not all, are made up of amino acid chains called proteins that accelerate the rate of reactions in chemical systems. Their functionality depends on how the proteins are folded as to what they bind and react with. For protein-based catalysts, amino acid polarization lies at the core of catalytic activity.
