Q.14:- Describe the important properties of enzymes.

 

Answer:



Enzymes are biological catalysts. No metabolic reaction takes place without an enzyme. Enzymes are highly specific to the substrates. Unlike inorganic catalysts, enzymes are susceptible to high temperatures and cease to act after optimum temperature. Enzymes greatly hasten the rate of metabolic reactions.
