Normal blood sugar of human right before eating = 70 - 90 mg / dL
When a mistake happens in a feedback loop , homeostasis is_
Example :_ tape I diabetes ( childhood )
( protein ).
Enzymes are biological catalyststhat act as catalysts to initiate and regulate chemical reactions
They can _
regulate / exclunate
reactions by lowering the activation energy needed to
get the reaction started, took)
When enzymes are_ Misshappened / change shape
_, they slow down the reaction rate
Enzymes have CRAZY specific structures that give them an insane amount of specificity in what
they do and how they function
Enzymes are highly_ Specific
- each one catalyzes only one chemical reaction.
Reactants are Specialized Substrate_ : they bind to specific sites on the enzyme = the active sites .

of Enzymes in Regulation
Living systems depend on reactions that occur_ Constantly
, but at very slow rates .
= substances that speed up the reactions without being permanently altered .
No catalyst makes a reaction occur_ Nithout cultivation achuity, acar.
Most biological catalysts are
( enzymes )
Every step in a metabolic pathway is catalyzed by a_ Specific enzyme
