(Greek: ferment, fermentation; leavenl; a leavening agent, a leavening catalyst)

vitazyme (s) (noun), vitazymes (pl)
1. A liquid concentrate microbially synthesized from plant materials, and then stabilized for long life: Vitazymes are powerful but natural biostimulants contained in the material which greatly benefits plant growth and soil conditions to boost growth and profits for the grower.
2. An all-natural liquid “biostimulant” for soil organisms and plants that contains twelve biological activators, which are by-products of a proprietary fermentation process: These vitazymes are active agents that include vitamins, enzymes, and other powerful but gentle growth stimulators such as B-vitamins, triacontanol, glycosides, and porphyrins.
3. A dry microbial and enzymic formula: The vitazyme is effective in reducing sludge, ammonia nitrites and other undesirable organic pollutants; such as, from waterfowl and fish feces, which have contaminated the water system continuously.

These vitazymes strains decrease H2S and other obnoxious gasses, and increase oxygen content and are applied to lagoons, lakes, rivers and estuaries, and polluted aquaculture, (fish and shrimp) farms.

zymase (s) (noun), zymases (pl)
An enzyme in yeast which changes sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide: Any of a group of zymases that, in the presence of oxygen, convert certain carbohydrates into carbon dioxide and water or, in the absence of oxygen, into alcohol and carbon dioxide or lactic acid.

Zymase is found in yeast, bacteria, and in higher plants and animals.

zyme (s) (noun), zymes (pl)
A ferment, as the morbific principle of a zymotic disease.
zymic (adjective), more zymic, most zymic
1. Like or pertaining to fermentation.
2. A reference to enzymes.
zymite (s) (noun), zymites (pl)
A reference to a priest using leavened bread during communion.
zymochemistry (s) (noun), zymochemistries (pl)
The scientific study of fermentation.
zymogen (s) (noun), zymogens (pl)
1. A substance formed in an organism, from which, by some internal change, an enzyme is produced.
2. The inactive precursor of an enzyme that, on reaction with an appropriate kinase or other chemical agent, liberates the enzyme into an active form.
3. A substance that develops into a chemical ferment or enzyme and exists in an inactive form before it becomes an active enzyme.
zymogen granule (s) (noun), zymogen granules (pl)
A secretory granule of a pre-enzyme substance seen in cells of synthetic organs synthetic organs; such as, salivary glands or the pancreas.
zymogene (s) (noun), zymogenes (pl)
A microbe that causes fermentation.
zymogenesis (s) (noun), zymogeneses (pl)
1. Transformation of a proenzyme (zymogen) into an active enzyme.
2. The process by which a proenzyme becomes transformed into an active enzyme.
zymogenic (adjective), more zymogenic, most zymogenic
1. A reference to causing fermentation.
2. Pertaining to production of a zymogen.
zymogenous (adjective), more zymogenous, most zymogenous
Relating to the cause of fermentation.
zymogram (s) (noun), zymograms (pl)
An electrophoretic graph of the separation of enzymes in a solution.
zymohexase (verb), zymohexases; zymohexased; zymohexasing
The enzyme involved in the process of splitting fructose.
zymohydrolosis (s) (noun), zymohydroloses (pl)
Fermentation or the process by which complex organic compounds; such as, glucose, are broken down by the action of enzymes into simpler compounds without the use of oxygen.
