30. Enzymes function most efficiently at the temperature of a typical cell, which is 37 degrees Celsius. Increases or decreases in temperature can significantly lower the reaction rate. What does this suggest about the importance of temperature-regulating mechanisms in organisms? What do you think happens to your enzymes when you have a fever? Explain.


so far i have:
Enzymes get denatured at high temps or at certain pH's.

Is there anything else i need to add?
