Abstract

In intermediary metabolism, enzymes are mainly for the specific provision of one small molecule from another, B from A, for its further use. But there are also decades of work relating to another evolved purpose, which is to prevent untoward effects of odd compounds of various origins, and of ordinary intermediates, whose improper concentrations may be avoided by hydrolases and other activities of metabolic correction.
