an enzyme is a substance produced by a living organism that acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction and they are important to cells because enzymes make everything work, they are made up of proteins and are used in almost every kind of reaction in the body hope this helps!!

There are two ways wherein cells regulate the activity of enzymes. These involve controlling the amount of the enzyme and controlling the activity level of the enzyme.

Enzymes break down your food.

enzyme sped up the chemical reaction

Active sites are located in enzymes inside the cells. this is where the substrate binds itself to the enzyme and the reaction takes place.

Enzymes affect the reactions in living cells by changing the....?

according to my information the lysosomes are the organelles that contain the cells digestive enzymes.

yes, enzymes can be inhibited by other enzymes.

The carbohydrase enzyme and amylase enzyme are the enzymes exclusive to America.

The main purpose for an enzyme in the organism is it speed up a chemical process. Enzymes also act as absorbers in cells.

Each enzyme functions to catalyze one specific reaction. Enzymes are subsrtate specific(highly selective).

- with enzymes the rate of reaction is higher- an important characteristic of an enzyme is the specifity

Yes because if the heat is to hot it can damage the enzymes

yes. at low temperature enzymes won't work as effectively, and at high temperature enzymes are denatured.

enzyme speed up the chemical reactions in living cells

Enzyme Amplification is the production of thousands of enzymes via the bondage of a hormone to a receptor protein. As enzymes are essential to chemical reactions within cells there needs to be a substantial amount to maintain the basal metabolic rate. Thus if only one Enzyme was produced to every hormone molecule there would not be a sufficient number of enzymes to sustain cell life (also due to the saturation of receptor proteins). Basically without enzyme amplification there would not be enough enzymes produces to enable enough chemical reactions to sustain cellular life.

Anti enzymes or enzyme inhibitors, are substances which inhibit counteracts the action of an enzyme.

Cells do not need to continuously manufacture large amounts of each enzyme since enzymes can be used over and over. Since they can be used in multiple reactions and in small amounts, enzymes don't have to be constantly made by the body.

Yes animals do have enzymes.Animal cells, per se, do not, but all vertebrate members of the animal kingdom do have enzymes. Members of the plant kingdom also have enzyme-like substances that are generally referred to as auxins.

because enzymes are specific and only work on one substrate. the shape of the enzyme's active site, only compliments the shape of its one specific substrate, so only the substrate that the enzymes works on, can fit into the enzyme.

there are many enzymes but the most important one is DNA polymerase.

starch for sure and probably carbohydrates they contain the enzyme catalase (enzymes are proteins...)

Most cells contain proteins that help turn key enzymes "on" or "off" at critical stages in the life of the cell.

Yes, enzymes have optimal working temperatures that differ from enzyme to enzyme

They help bring about chemical reactions.
