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? Explain.

    Wouldn't you expect the temperature regulation in organisms to be VERY important else the enzymes would not function properly?
