In What Way Does an Enzyme Affect the Reaction It Catalyzes?

Answer

Enzymes can affect the reaction it catalyzes by the rate of which the chemical reaction occurs. Not all chemical reactions happen quickly. For instance, metabolic processes happen slower and cannot sustain life, but when you add a chemical agent to influence the rate, it allows the reaction to occur at a much faster rate. Enzymes speed up reactions by lowering the energy barrier. This is known as activation energy. As you can see, enzymes are essential for life.

it doesn't. actually it does! sorry wiki answers wudnt let me delete that last answer, but enzymes can accelerate or slow down a reaction. and then seperate/ unhinge from the product
