All enzymes are proteins, but all proteins are not enzymes.hence false
Enzymes are biological molecules (proteins) that act as catalysts and help complex reactions occur everywhere in life.
Enzymes have an active site. This is part of the molecule that has just the right shape and functional groups to bind to one of the reacting molecules. The reacting molecule that binds to the enzyme is called the substrate.
Enzymes are very efficient catalysts for biochemical reactions. They speed up reactions by providing an alternative reaction pathway of lower activation energy
