Do Temperature of the cytoplasm influence the action of enzymes?

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


Explain the effects of temperatures above the maximum and below the minimum growth temperatures on cellular enzymes?

Enzymes generally work within a given temperature range. As the temperature is increased the activity will increase. However if the optimum temperature is surpassed, the enzymes will stop working.


What happens to enzyme actvitys when temperature rises?

The enzymes will stop working because they only work in certain temperatures.


Does photosynthesis use or produce oxygen?

Photosynthesis is the process in which a plant, working with the sun and other sources, PRODUCES oxygen.


Difference between hot working process cold working process?

Hot mechanical working operation on the missing piece we do. Mechanical operation of the work we do on a normal cold temperatures.


How does heat affect the speed of photosynthesis?

The rate of photosynthesis depends on temperature the same way enzymes depend on temperature. Photosynthesis involves enzyme assistance. Enzymes are biological catalysts that speed up chemical reactions. Enzymes are affected by pH and temperature. If the pH is too acidic or basic, enzymes will be denatured (which means they will change shape and not be able to catalyze reactions as well or entirely). Same goes for temperature. If the temperature is too cold or too hot, the enzymes might deactivate, or their efficiency will be inhibited. So, if the temperature of the organism's environment is too high or low, the rate of photosynthesis will decrease because the enzymes aren't working properly. On the other hand, if the temperature is optimal for enzyme activity, the rate will increase, as production is at its high.


Are enzymes active in dead organisms?

No, enzymes stop working when the body dies


Is the ammonia Haber Bosch process dangerous?

Working with gases (especially hydrogen and ammonia) at high temperatures and pressures may be dangerous.


Why does Enzyme reaction rate decrease at 37 degrees?

Enzymes are catalysts for chemical reactions. All chemical reactions are affected by temperature. Higher temperatures make the reactions happen faster, and colder temperatures make them happen slower. At 37 degrees, just a little above freezing, many biological enzymes practically stop working.


What are the substances that keep enzymes from working?

inhibitors


What does it mean when an enzyme is denatured?

when an enzyme is denatured, it means that it is unable to be functional or active. for example, the enzymes in a flower for it to use photosynthesis work best at around 35 degrees celsius. once the temperature reaches past 60, the enzymes stopp working and the plant no longer is able to produce photosynthesis. denature all in all, denatured is when the enzyme is unable to work
