Firstly, what are enzymes? Enzymes are natural catalystsThey are proteinsThey speed up the chemical reactions in the body
They need certain conditions to function correctly.
How do they work?
- Enzymes are shaped in a complex manner
- This allows substrate mollecules to attach to the enzymes
- The molecules are then fused together into one larger molecule.
However the active site (the place where substrates join on) has a specific shape. If…
