Which of the following statements concerning enzymes is false


Which of the following statements concerning enzymes is false? Most are nonspecific and will work on any substrate They speed

Answer

Enzymes are made up of proteins. These catalyze the reactions and speed up the reaction by lowering the activation energy. Enzymes are named after the substrate they catalyze and a suffix ‘ase’ is added after the name of substrate to form the name of the enzyme. The enzymes bind with a particular substrate and follow the lock and key model for binding. Each enzyme has a specific site to which a particular type of substrate can bind. They work under optimum temperature and pH. Changes in these conditions affect enzyme activity.

The answer is A.
