Don't get caught in the linguistic trap of attaching too much significance to the precise meaning of any one piece of scientific jargon. Nomenclature, the system of naming things, utterly sucks in biology, and it sucks even harder for protein biology. There is no one universally accepted classification and naming system for proteins, although there have been ...

There is some evidence that garbage enzymes have significant enzyme activity, so they really work. The decomposable waste thrown into the environment can be used to produce value added bio-product which in turn reduces the production of greenhouse gas. Garbage enzyme is one such value added product produced by fermentation of organic solid waste. ...

The discussion you linked (here) shows that both researchers agree that 'garbage enzymes' are mostly acetic acid or vinegar, with a low pH(3-4). Fresh papayas contain papain, but roughly 2% of the enzyme self-digests per day in aqueous solution. Bromelain from pineapples is still active at acidic pH. Like most other proteases, it self-digests much more ...

Enzymes usualy have a relative narrow temperature optimum, for those of our body this is usually around 37°C. It is around 37,2°C in the morning and goes slightly up to 37,7°C in the evening (see reference 1 for details). The temparature optimum for most enzymes looks somewhat like displayed in the figure (from here, interesting to read): Enzymes are ...

This is a draft. How do the pharmacodynamics of the NSAIDs differ - -? Merck's manual ch. 36 to start little bit at an introductory level: The anti-inflammatory activity of the NSAIDs is mediated chiefly through inhibition of biosynthesis of prostaglandins (Figure 36–2). Various NSAIDs have additional possible mechanisms of action, including ...
