Factors affecting enzyme activity

HideShow resource information
What are the 4 factors affecting enzyme activity
Temperature, pH, enzyme concentration, substrate concentration
1 of 5
Explain temperatures effect on enzyme activity
Rise in temperature makes the enzymes vibrate more. At a certain point, bonds break and enzymes denature so don't fit into active site
2 of 5
Explain pH effect on enzyme activity
Enzymes also have an optimum pH that they work best at, 7.
3 of 5
Explain enzyme concentration effect on enzyme activity
Increasing the concentration of enzymes increases the rate of reaction
4 of 5
Explain Substrate concentration effect on enzyme activity
Higher the substrate concentration the faster the reaction
