  • Factors affecting enzyme activity
    • Temperature
      • Increased kinetic energy of particles.
      • Rate of reaction increases
    • Denaturation from temperature
      • At high temperatures the bonds vibrate more. Bonds break.
        • Break up of tertiary structure
    • Optimum temperature
      • Enzyme has highest rate of reaction.
      • Temperature coefficient no longer applies when above.
