  • Computational chemistry draws for first time 'interactive cartographic map' of enzymes during chemical reactions

    Knowing how enzymes work is key to control the chemical processes involving these biological macromolecules that have countless applications in the fields of medicine and industry. Computational chemistry has enabled to draw for the first time the enzymes "cartographic map" during the catalysis process, including the moment when they are at the point of maximum energy on the way from reactants ...
