Asked in Biology
Can you destroy enzymes?
Enzymes are basically proteins. Proteins are macromolecules whose structures are maintained by hydrogen bonds which are not so resistant to heat and chemical action. In order to denature(destroy) a protein, it shhould be heated to a sufficient temperature. This breaks its secondary structure and the protein loses its function.

How does a virus enter and destroy cells?
A virus has glycoprotein antigen molecules on its surface that bind to surface protein and/or glycoprotein molecules on the cell. Once the virus has thereby attached itself to the surface of the cell it injects its nucleic acid molecule into the cell, which then takes over the cell forcing it to make millions of copies of the virus. When the cell fills with virus particles it bursts and dies.

Asked in Prions
Can prions be destroyed by cooking?
No, cooking does not destroy or disable prions. If you were able to cook a meat that contains prions to the point where the prions were disabled, the meat would be rendered inedible. You can use chemicals mixed with heat to destroy prions, but that's not a process you would want to subject your food to.
