    • Enzymes are biological catalysts.
    • Catalysts are used to speed up chemical reactions but are not used up in the reaction themselves

    • The enzymes have a specific active site that fits one type of substrate
    • Enzymes are large protein molecules
      • The long chains of protein molecules are folded to produce a molecule with an active site, which is specific to its substrate molecule.
    • If the temperature of pH level is too high the enzyme will become denatured which means the active site shape will change.
