Enzyme Amplification and Hormone Clearance
What is enzyme amplification?
Enzyme amplification is the term provided for when one hormone molecule activates thousands of additional enzyme molecules; this producer a greater response.
What is hormone clearance?
Hormone clearance occurs when the hormone that has caused a specific reaction needs to be deactivated, or in other words, broken down. This is usually done through means of enzymes in the target organs. The broken-down hormones are then passed on through the liver, to either be deaminated or broken down further before passing out of the body via the kidneys.
