In inadequate conditions concerning heat and acidity, proteins in the cell will denature.


The denaturing will cause the proteins to no longer be functional which makes so that many enzymes, that are needed for the cell to keep it's basic function, will cease to work. This includes ribosomes, mitochondria and pretty much everything else you'd like to have in a cell. No functioning ribosomes means your cell wont synthesize any proteins, and no functioning mitochondria means no ATP.
