B3 - Enzymes and pH

HideShow resource information

The pH of an enzymes surroundings effects how it works.

If the pH is too high or too low for that particular enzyme, then the bonds that hold the enzyme together break.

This means that the enzyme loses its shape.

If this happens, then the active site of the enzyme also loses its shape, meaning that the substrate no longer fits into it.
