Injuries to Catalytic Units
In previous chapters we have stated that atoms combine to make molecules, molecules interact to make larger molecules (macromolecules), and macromolecules with different properties complex to make organelles, such as chromosomes and mitochondria. We made it appear as simple as building a toy house with wood blocks. Obviously, the interaction of atoms and molecules is much more complicated; so complicated that a description of the details is far beyond the scope of the book. Yet I shall try to give the reader a taste of and possibly an appetite for learning about these complex interactions.
