Enzymes are protein molecules that speed up the rate of chemical reactions in cells
1 of 5
what do enzymes need to work at their optimum
they need to be at a specific temperature
2 of 5
what happens after the optimum has been reached
they start to get damaged so the reaction starts to slow down
3 of 5
what does denature mean
when the enzymes structure has been permanently damaged and has caused the reaction to stop.
4 of 5
what is the 'lock and key model'?
when a molecule with the correct shape fits into an enzyme
