How will each of the following changes in condition alter the rate of an enzyme-catalyzed reaction:

-decreasing temp to 10 deg C?

-increasing the pH of the solution from 7 to 11?

-heating only the enzyme to 100 deg C?

Structure of enzyme protiens, and how they fulfill their biological role

My problem is as follows. I need to write a short account of no more than 400 words in which I discuss:-

The general stucure of enzyme protiens, and

how the stucture of enzymes allows them to fulfill their biological role.

I am to include the following terms into the above account:-
Primary Stucture
Peptide bonds
Weak Bonds
Higher-order Stucture
Globular protien
Energy barrier
Active site
Enzyme-substrate complex

I know all the terms are their and can be easily looked up, I am having trouble trying to put things in order and keep within the word limit. Can anyone please help me with this

Thank you
