Six factors Affecting The Performance of An Enzyme

Enzymes are considered catalysts; substances that increase the rates of reactions. Enzymes are responsible for thousands of metabolic processes that involve the sustainment of life, one common one is simple food digestion. Without enzymes, digestion would occur too slowly for life to continue. Enzymes maintain a protein structure consisting of one or possibly more than…
