Biol. 2001, 5, 130–136. 19 2 Characterization of a (Bio-)catalyst Summary Enzymes are a class of macromolecules with the ability both to bind small molecules and to effect reaction. Stabilizing forces such as hydrophobic effects only slightly dominate destabilizing forces such as Coulombic forces of equal polarity; thus the Gibbs free enthalpy of formation of proteins, ∆Gformation, is only weakly negative.
