Glucose

GLUCOSE is used to build many other molecules in living things.Glucose is produced in PHOTOSYNTHESIS - it can then be converted into another carbohydrate suitable for storage called STARCH!
Glucose is used for ENERGY - which is released by respiration.

Enzymes

ENZYMES are protein molecules that speed up the rate of CHEMICAL REACTIONS in living organisms.

They need a specific and constant temperature to work. 

Enzymes can speed up Catabolic reactions (where molecules are broken down) as well as Anabolic  reactions (Where new molecules are built up)
