I know that both catalase and iron break down hydrogen peroxide
I assume the protein superstructure must help but I have had trouble
understanding why--perhaps better orientation is gained with the enzyme compared
to just the metal? I really do need to understand the high level biochemistry
etc--can you help? thank-you
