How would the body's metabolic rate be affected if there were no enzymes?
How would reactions be affected if enzymes were not present in cells?
Asked in Zoology or Animal Biology
What could happen if an animal's enzymes overheat in a desert climate?
Asked in Biochemistry
How would an organism's homeostasis be affected if it was not able to produce enzymes?
Asked in Biology, Biochemistry, Catalysts and Catalysis
What are enzymes important in?
Everything! Most of the metabolic reactions of your body is aided by enzymes which are biological catalysts. That is why when people have fever we should try to bring our body temperature back to normal if not too high temperatures would denature enzymes and cause them to stop functioning, which would in turn affect our body processes.
What would cause metabolic alkalosis to slide into metabolic acidosis?
How enzyme function in the liver would be affected in a person with cirrhosis?

Asked in Catalytic Converters
Why is the catalytic activity of enzymes essential to ensure and regulate cellular metabolism?
Enzymes lower the activation energy for chemical reactions, allowing the reactions to proceed. Enzymes also can serve to bring components of a reaction together in the proper orientation. Enzymes can hydrolyze macromolecules into smaller components, enabling them to be transported across the cell membrane. Without enzymes, many metabolic reactions would not be able to be conducted efficiently, if at all.
What are the roles of enzymes?
Enzymes catalyze reactions by lowering the activation energy needed without themselves being used up in the process. Without catalysts such as enzymes, some chemical metabolic reactions would take forever to happen or not happen at all. a specific enzyme usually catalyzes only one kind of chemical reaction
Asked in Genetics
Why is prolonged anaerobic fermentation causing the enzymes of a cell to become increasingly dysfunctional and eventually lead to a shutdown of the cell's metabolic pathways?
this wouldn't be a human anatomy question would it? lol Im looking for this answer to! I think i know this answer.. I think.. But can't hurt to try. The reason for the enzymes of a cell to become increasingly dysfunctional and eventually leading to a shutdown of the cell's metabolic pathways is that many enzymes of a cell are highly O2, sensitive. That's all. haha. I don't know what to add after that.
Asked in Liver
The absorption of which type of nutrient would be affected if the liver no longer produced bile?
Asked in Digestive System
How would the rate of digestion be affected if enzymes were not released by the various organs and glands?
Enzymes help speed up chemical reactions, so if enzymes were missing, the body would need to heat up to around 200 something degrees to burn the food eaten. However, seeing as the average body temperature is only 98 degrees, that would be impossible. The enzymes in our body bring the reaction temperature down so that the chemical reaction can happen at a lower temperature.
Asked in Biology
Why are enzymes important to organisms?
Enzymes help to control metabolic reactions in organisms. Enzymes are protein molecules that act as biological catalysts. They break things down to be digested. More specifically they provide an energy path-way that has a lower activation energy then the normal process. Saving energy is one of the primary importances of natural selection. Even more specifically enzymes provide a path-way for productions that would be impossible other-wise.
