Is the function of a co-enzyme to make a reaction run quicker? If catalysts speed up reactions, and enzymes are catalysts, and co-enzymes make enzymes work better, does that mean the co-enzymes just make reactions quicker?

  • $\begingroup$ Where coenzymes are used, they are generally required for catalysis. $\endgroup$ – canadianer Apr 24 '17 at 17:21

    $\begingroup$ What research have you done to answer this question for yourself? Have you googled for "coenzyme"? This site expects posters to demonstrate that they have put in some effort themselves. $\endgroup$ – David Apr 24 '17 at 18:24
  • $\begingroup$ @David I think the biggest problem with the question is that it is unclear. We need to know what enzyme/co-enzyme OP is asking about before google even enters the fray. Either way, I think the question needs to be developed further. $\endgroup$ – James Apr 25 '17 at 4:10
