Conference paper


The metabolic activity of a cell is dependent on its enzymatic architecture. Factors disturbing this architecture can influence the synthesis and breakdown of macromolecules, needed for the functional integrity of the cell. The result is cell death, increased rate of cell proliferation, or an alteration of its biological character such as cell surface. The synthesis and the catalytic activity of enzymes are regulated by genes, which are under the influence of environmental signals, namely, hormones, metabolites, various types of ions, and so on.
