The maximum inital reaction rate for the enzyme at pH 7 was 350. 3. Explain why the maximum initial reaction rate cannot be reached at low substrate  concentrations. The maximum inital reaction rate cannot be reached at low substrate concentrations 4. What does your data indicate about the optimum pH level for this enzyme-catalyzed  reaction? My data indicates that the enzyme-catalyze react at its peak at the pH level of 7.

5. 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. The fact that temperature plays a big part in the way enzymes react suggest that  maybe there are mechanisms inside of organisms that maintain the 37 celsius  degree mark so that the enzymes can do what they need to do.
