    Think about the interactions between amino acids in the tertiary structure. Much of the structural integrity is due to hydrogen bonds and hydrophilic interactions. Changes in temperature have a direct effect on these interactions. H-bonds, specifically, are disrupted by increases in temperature. What would this mean for the structure of enzymes?
