Enzymes lo ok like Rube Goldberg-ish contraptions when their function is considered: huge molecules are used to make small ones interact.� Proteins have a four-level structure, and the second level is held in place by hydrogen bonds .� The enzyme�s pair of �hands� is like that of a robot on an assembly line, putting two parts together and passing the assembly to the next stage.� An enzyme can catalyze millions of reactions per second.� All of today�s life on Earth would cease to exist in the absence of enzymes.� Other than the ability to reproduce itself and produce proteins, speeding up reactions by millions of times is life�s most important �trick� and its greatest energy innovation.� Adenosine triphosphate ("ATP") is a coenzyme used to fuel all known biological processes.� The human body produces its own weight in ATP each day.� Poisons and drugs generally disable enzymes by plugging or wrecking the �lock� so that the intended �key� will not fit.� Cyanide kills by disabling a key enzyme that produces ATP, which induces an energy shortage at the cellular level.

Many tra its of apes, including humans, are evident in monkeys.� Sexual dimorphism, which is when species have genders of different shapes and sizes, is a minor phenomenon among prosimians. [454] � But it is pronounced in simians, especially apes, and is why men are larger and stronger than women.� Its ultimate cause is probably sexual selection: how females choose their mates.� A prominent hypothesis is that early monkey troupes had males as sentinels guarding the territorial perimeter and protecting the female-dominated core where offspring were cared for and where food was.� A defensible food source was the key attribute of any simian territory.� Most primates are territorial, and extreme territorial behaviors can be seen in monkeys and apes, including murder, with its apotheosis in humans.
