Martin is studying sucrase activity. He added sucrose solution + sucrase solution + buffer of pH 5.6 in two tubes. He incubated them at 350C and 1000C respectively.

The enzymes in the second test tube must have denatured at 1000C, since most enzymes degrade at such high temperatures. Enzymes must have remained dormant a
