What is the function of coenzymes?


Question asked by: knowitall

A coenzyme is an organic molecule.

A couple of examples of coenzymes would be the following: ATP and NAD, ATP of course being by far the best well known of the coenzymes perhaps.

The purpose or function of a coenzyme is to play an accessory role in what is known as an enzyme-catalysed process.

Often the function of the coenzyme is to be the donor or acceptor of a substance that is involved during the course of a reaction.
