Biosynthesis is the production of complex molecules within living organisms or cells. Biosynthesis takes simple molecules and turns them into bigger molecules.
- Precursor molecules: Precursor molecules are the starting molecules in biosynthesis.
- Chemical energy: Energy is needed to turn the precursor molecules into the result.
- Catalytic enzymes: Enzymes help the reactions go faster. Enzymes also lower the energy needed.
- Coenzymes: Coenzymes help the chemical reactions.
