The conversion of chemical energy: Part 2. Biochemical examples  Wink, Donald J.
Biological systems regulate energy transfer reactions through enzymes that permit a spontaneous reaction to go faster through a mechanism that also accomplishes work instead of, or in addition to, releasing energy as heat.
