Catalytic activityReaction(s) catalyzed by an enzyme
CofactorNon-protein substance required for enzyme activity
Activity regulationRegulatory mechanism of enzymes, transporters, microbial transcription factors
Biophysicochemical propertiesBiophysical and physicochemical properties
PathwayAssociated metabolic pathways
Active siteAmino acid(s) directly involved in the activity of an enzyme
Metal bindingBinding site for a metal ion
