  • Yes, enzyme are reusable and specific in nature.


  • REUSABLE: Enzymes are used as catalyst to increase the rate of reaction.The time to complete a reaction with enzymes is less than without enzymes. But during reaction they remain unchanged chemically as well as physically. After the completion of reaction , the enzyme is again released without being changed so that they can be reused for other reaction.
  • SPECIFIC:Enzymes are specific in nature because each enzyme is specific for a given reaction .for example: enzyme uricase can only act on uric acid whereas arginase can only act on arginine.Enzyme uricase cannot act on arginine.
