Examples of Enzymes


  • Amylase
  • Catalase
  • Starch Synthase
  • DNA Polymerase


  • is found in the saliva and small intestine and catalysed the reaction of starch to small sugars (maltose)
  • is found in most cells especially liver cells and catalyses the reaction of hydrogen peroxide to water and oxygen
  • is found in plants and catalyses the reaction of synthesis of starch from glucose
  • is found in the nucleus and catalyses the reaction of synthesis of DNA from monomers

Overall summary

The uses of enzymes is mostly for digestion and synthesis. They are used to catalyse reactions and mostly found in digestive organs, some are found in plants.
