    There are many enzymes that aid in condensation and hydrolysis reactions. The enzymes differ in the substrates they use for the condensation/hydrolysis reactions. These enzymes are broadly categorized as hydroylases and include enzymes such as protein kinases and phosphatases, DNA and RNA polymerases, and the ribosome.
