Enzyme is a substance (usually protein) produced by a living organism that acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction. Enzymes speed up rates of chemical reactions.
 
A biocatalyst is a substance, especially an enzyme, that initiates or modifies the rate of a chemical reaction in a living body.
