  1. THE ROLE OF ENZYMES
    What is the role of enzymes?
    • 1. Control metabolism
    • 2. Are biological catalysts
    • 3. reduce the energy needed to start a reaction
    • 4. Are proteins
    • 5. Are very specific (the only have one type of reaction)
    • 6. Require optimum conditions for best activity
    • 7. Are not consumed in a reaction, so they can be used again.

    (B) All enzymes work best with a pH range of 5 to 8.
    (C) Each enzyme catalyses a number of reactions.
    (D) Enzymes work by providing an active site for a substance.
    (D) Enzymes work by providing an active site for a substance.
