  • SummaryThis theoretical article concerns the basic principles of enzymatic conversion at the molecular level. The high rate of enzymatic reactions can be explained by a concept of collective substrate conversion of a cooperative nature. The proposed mechanism of charge separation in electron transport includes two aspects: electron tunnelling and coupled proton transfer. Energy transduction in muscle contraction and oxidative phosphorylation is outlined.
