Textbook Problem

Both lyases and hydrolases catalyze reactions involving water molecules. What is the difference in the types of reactions that these two enzymes catalyze?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Difference in reactions catalyzed by lyases and hydrolases is to be determined.

Concept introduction:

The chemical digestion of food is done by the digestive enzymes. All of the digestive enzymes that break down the food molecules in the presence of water are hydrolases. Lyases enzymes are responsible for catalyzing the addition of groups to double bond or removal of groups to form double bonds.

Explanation

Hydrolases, oxidoreductases, ligases, isomerases, transferases, and lyases are the six groups of enzymes. Hydrolases are involved in hydrolysis reactions in which water molecule is used for the breakdown of the chemical bond and to form two new molecules...
