biochemistry

The study of the chemical processes going on in living organisms, especially humans. Biochemistry is concerned, among other things, with the acceleration of biochemical processes by ENZYMES; with the chemical messengers of the body (HORMONES); with communication between cells at cell membranes; with the chemical processes which govern cell survival and reproduction; with the production of energy in cells; and with the processes of digestion of food and the way in which the resulting chemical substances are utilized for energy and structural purposes.
