Answer to Question #32779 in Biochemistry for alexandra alfageme
The maltose molecule can be broken down into two individual glucose molecules with the help of an enzyme produced within a cell. Which of the following changes is most likely to slow down this reaction?
An increasing volume of cell and adding more maltose molecules can slow down this reaction. Adding more maltose can slow down this reaction because when we add more maltose the level of enzyme is decreased and reaction cannot flow quickly. If the volume of cell increases it cannot produce enzyme for this reaction and therefore, reaction slows down.
