Enzymes and the Type of Reactions they Catalyze ( Part 5 : ISOMERASES)

Ok what are isomers? Same molecular Formula, different structure! That is an Isomer! And presumably isomerases play with these isomers. But how?

  • Racemase - Conversion of D isomer to L isomer or vice versa(Read about them here more in IkaN's article)
  • Mutase - Conversion of one constitutional isomer into another. They shift one functional group from one place to another place within the same molecule.
Are we clear on this?
