Do enzymes absorb excess heat so that reactions occur at low temperatures?

Answer:

Enzymes do not have that function.

Explanation:

Enzymes are catalysts; they modify the rate of the forward and reverse reactions. In the catalyzed reaction, a greater proportion of reactant molecules may have the requisite activation energy (which the enzyme has reduced), and thus the reaction rate accelerates.
