Bio lab question 2

What does adding an acid to an enzyme do to a reaction?

  • Bio lab question 2 -

    I think that really depends on the kind of reaction. An enzyme is a biological katalyst for a reaction, meaning it will speed up, or slow down, a reaction, depending on the desired effect.

    Adding an acid to a reaction can have all kinds of effect. Can you give us any more specifics about the reaction?
