    what exactly are the functions of hydrolases and oxidoreductases??

    i know oxidoreductases are involved in the e- transport chain, but are they basically the cytochromes... and do you know examples of the enzymes??

    Hydrolases are enzymes involved in a hydrolysis reaction eg amylase hydrolysing the break down of start to maltose.

    Oxidioreductases are a group of enzymes involved in redox reactions. So the ezymes involved in reducing NAD+ to NADH2 examples of this.
