The following has been excerpted from a very popular Worthington publication which was originally published in as the Manual of Clinical Enzyme Measurements. While some of the presentation may seem somewhat dated, the basic concepts are still helpful for researchers who must use enzymes but who have little background in enzymology. Except for some of the originally studied enzymes such as pepsin , rennin, and trypsin , most enzyme names end in "ase".
ExplorEnz: the primary source of the IUBMB enzyme list
Since many enzymes have common names that do not refer to their function or what kind of reaction they catalyze, an enzyme classification system was established. There were six classes of enzymes that were created so that enzymes could easily be named. Enzymes are normally used for catalyzing the transfer of functional groups, electrons, or atoms. Since this is the case, they are assigned names by the type of reaction they catalyze. The enzymes were numbered and from here, they were divided into subdivisions.
A simple web-based query interface is provided, along with an advanced search engine for more complex Boolean queries. An associated form-based curatorial application has been developed to facilitate the curation of enzyme data as well as the internal and public review processes that occur before an enzyme entry is made official. The assignment of EC numbers and preparation of descriptive entries for each enzyme is coordinated by our group at Trinity College Dublin. Enzymes are classified according to the reactions they catalyse. Each enzyme, or group of enzymes that catalyse the same reaction, is given a four-part EC number, each part of which provides information about the reaction s catalysed. The structure of the catalytic molecule is not taken into account in the classification process so enzymes with different structures that catalyse the same reaction will have the same EC number. Further details of the rules used for enzyme classification have been published elsewhere 1 , 3 , 4 as well at the ExplorEnz website.
Enzyme Nomenclature 1978
Enzyme Nomenclature is based upon the recommendations of the Nomenclature Committee of the International Union of Biochemistry on the Nomenclature and Classification of Enzymes. This book deals with the naming of enzymes. The text describes problems encountered in the past when individual scientists named enzymes randomly, resulting in duplication, misnomers, and confusion. Some order followed upon the establishment of the International Commission on Enzymes. This book also explains the classification and nomenclature scheme through general principles that should be followed in dealing with enzymes. The text describes the systematic and trivial names, the key to numbering of enzymes, and the rules of classification and nomenclature. The book also contains the enzyme list including the class of oxidoreductases, transferases, hydrolases, lyases, and ligases synthetases.
An enzyme is a protein or RNA produced by living cells, which is highly specific and highly catalytic to its substrates. Enzymes are a very important type of macromolecular biological catalysts. Due to the action of enzymes, chemical reactions in organisms can also be carried out efficiently and specifically under mild conditions. The nomenclature of enzymes is derived from their substrates or the catalyzed chemical reactions, and "ase" is usually added as a suffix. Enzymes can be indexed with letters and numbers according to International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology: the letter EC plus four numbers representing four elements.

Enzyme Definition and Classification
Enzyme , a substance that acts as a catalyst in living organisms, regulating the rate at which chemical reactions proceed without itself being altered in the process. A brief treatment of enzymes follows. For full treatment, see protein: Enzymes. The biological processes that occur within all living organisms are chemical reactions , and most are regulated by enzymes.
Учитель превратился в ученика. Однажды вечером на университетском представлении Щелкунчика Сьюзан предложила Дэвиду вскрыть шифр, который можно было отнести к числу базовых. Весь антракт он просидел с ручкой в руке, ломая голову над посланием из одиннадцати букв: HL FKZC VD LDS В конце концов, когда уже гасли огни перед началом второго акта, его осенило. Шифруя послание, Сьюзан просто заменила в нем каждую букву на предшествующую ей алфавите. Для расшифровки Беккеру нужно было всего лишь подставить вместо имеющихся букв те, что следовали непосредственно за ними: А превращалось в В, В - в С и так далее.
