Problem: An enzyme _______.A. becomes part of the final productsB. is nonspecific for substratesC. is affected by heat and pHD. is consumed by the reaction

FREE Expert Solution

An enzyme is most commonly known as a biological catalyst. Being a catalyst, it speeds up the rate (kinetics) of certain reactions but maintains component concentrations at equilibrium (thermodynamics). Catalysts speed up rates of reactions by going through a mechanism that follows a different pathway, which has a significantly reduced energy of activation.
