I am reviewing a paper where the term "isozymes" is being used in a way I 
do not typically use it.  I'm not sure if my limited use is correct.  I tend 
to use the term for enzymes with similar catalytic activity, but fairly subtle 
structural differences.  Would one apply the term to 3 enzymes which 
have totally different structures, but the same catalytic action?  

To E-mail me, remove the xxx from my name.
