What does the bacterial enzyme leukocidin do?

This enzyme is produced by some bacteria to kill leukocytes mainly neutrophils. The name leukocidin tells you what it does. Leuko = white + cidin = kill.

What is inhibition and why enzymes need to be inhibited?

What temperature is enzyme usaually inactive at?

95degree C for 5min will kill/denature most of the proteins in a preparation.

How does pH influence enzyme activity?

Enzymes work within an optimal range of pH levels. If the ph level is either above or below the range, it could denature and kill the enzyme.

Why it is better to breath using nose then mouth?

If you breathe through your nose you have the hairs which catch the bacteria and then you have enzymes that come and kill the bacteria leaving them as bogeys. now every enzyme is like a fingerprint, unique. Every enzyme has another enzyme that helps it, one catches and one kills. but only one type of enzyme can kill a type of bacteria. So breathing through your nose kills more. If you breathe through your mouth your spit has the same process but because of the loss of hairs you don't kill as many bacteria. Hope I helped.

Why you put clavulanic acid with amoxicillin?

Does acid kill enzymes?

While "kill" isn't the right word for it since enzymes are not alive, a change in pH (becoming more acidic for instance) can cause an enzyme to denature and become useless.
