Enzymes and other proteins are polymers built of different combinations
of the 20 common amino acids. The sequence and length of the amino acids
in the polymer differ between enzymes, and this determines the
3-dimensional structure, the activity and specificity of the enzyme. The
physico-chemical characteristics of enzymes are mainly dependent on the
amino acids building the enzyme. Since all enzymes are built up of a
combination of the same 20 common amino acids, the physical and chemical
characteristics will be very similar across different enzymes.
The majority of the physico-chemical characteristics are not relevant
for enzymes e.g. boiling point, therefore, only relevant parameters have
