ase
cye
ose

can't find it anywhere
what do they mean??

Answers:
-ase - suffix meaning 'enzyme'
-cyte - suffix meaning 'cell'
-ose - suffix meaning 'sugar'

Here's a nifty page that lets you hide the suffixes or the definitions, kind of like online flashcards, for dozens of medical suffixes - http://www.studystack.com/studytable-608...
-ose1
a suffix occurring in adjectives borrowed from Latin, meaning “full of,” “abounding in,” “given to,” “like”: frondose; globose; jocose; otiose;


-ase
a suffix used in the names of enzymes: oxidase.

Can't find the third one. Cye does not look familiar as an ending

cyto-
a combining form meaning “cell,” used in the formation of compound words: cytoplasm. Also, cyte-; especially before a vowel, cyt-.


cyto- or cyt- pref. Cell: cytoplasm.
The suffix -ase is used in biochemistry to form names of enzymes. The most common way to name enzymes is to add this suffix onto the end of the substrate, e.g. an enzyme that breaks down peroxides may be called peroxidase. Sometimes enzymes are named for the function they perform, rather than substrate, e.g. the enzyme that joins DNA strands is called polymerase (it polymerises DNA).

The suffix -ose is used in biochemistry to form the names of sugars. Numerous systems exist to name specific sugars more descriptively.

The only cye suffix I know of is one that means "great one" . It occurs in the language of the Mandolorians where were a people that lived only in the Star War's movies lol
