Applications of enzymes in nature

Enzymes are proteins, vital components of any living organism such as microorganisms, plants and animals. Enzymes are essential to all forms of life.

Enzymes are the tools of nature. They ‘break down’ and ‘build’ molecules such as nutrients, and speed up all vital biological processes. Enzymes used in industrial processes originate from nature, and therefore can be used in the same way as nature does.

Plant photosynthesis would not be possible without enzymes

Ruminants which have herbivorous diets use the cellulase produced by the microbes existing in their stomach to break down the plant cellulose into nutrients they can absorb, to mention just a few examples.
