Metrop Plant enzymes

Plant Enzymes

Enzymes can make substances smaller but also bind 2 substances together.

Enzymes in the plant root stimulator ROOT+ are connecting bio-catalysts: they are proteins with a building catalytic function. A catalyst is a substance that accelerates the speed of the reaction without being consumed.

Enzymes in the product Metrop Enzymes are braking bio-catalysts: they are proteins with a braking down catalytic function. Such enzymes are important to avoid bacterial diseases from rotting plant materials. 

Some enzymes from the Hydrolases group can even brake down bacterials and fungi's like mildew. Such products are a environmentally friendly option against pesticides.

Enzymes are large proteins with a certain spatial structure. (usually spherical)

In an enzyme catalyzed reaction, the enzyme binds the substrate: an enzyme-substrate complex is formed. Then the reaction takes place, the products release from the enzyme. Hydrogen bridges (water) play an important role in the enzyme-substrate connection.

Enzymes work specifically, they can only convert one or at most a few related substrates. Enzyme and substrate must fit together like a key in a lock.

Enzyme groups

You can divide enzymes into groups:

Hydrolases These enzymes catalyze hydrolysis reactions. Hydrolysis is a split of chemical compounds with the inclusion of water.
Oxidoreductases These enzymes catalyze redox processes. (electron transfer)
Transfer phases These enzymes catalyze group transfer reactions.
Lyases These enzymes catalyze the carbon-carbon (C-C) (C-O) (C-N) cleavage
Ligasen These enzymes catalyze the links between substrates.


Enzymes and coenzymes only have a limited lifespan and must be replaced on time.

Adding extra enzymes to or on the crop will always result in a faster and healthier growth of each plant.
