Some enzymes need other associated molecules to work. These molecules are called enzyme cofactors and they can be organic ions like mineral salts, or organic molecules, to give some examples.

Inactive enzymes which are not bound to their cofactors are called apoenzymes. Active enzymes bound to their cofactors are called holoenzymes.
