Question by better@math: AP Bio: environmental factors that affect enzye mediated reaction?
Identify TWO environmental factors that can change the rate of an enzyme-mediated reaction. Discuss how each of those two factors would affect the reaction rate of an enzyme.
Please answer this. any info helps
Answer by Apu
The first two that came to mind are pH and temperature. pH can affect ionization states of acidic/basic amino acids in the enzyme and potentially cause it to change shape or decrease substrate affinity. Temperature changes also cause shape to change since high temperatures destabilize bonds and cause structures to collapse.
