43) where K ϭ constant (unitless). 7 Effect of temperature Biological processes are affected by temperature. Generally speaking, the higher the temperature, the higher the microbial activity until an optimum temperature is reached. Further increase of the temperature beyond its optimum value results in a precipitous decrease of microbial activity. Although theoretically all four biokinetic coefficients may be affected by temperature, the effect of temperature on the kinetics of biological processes is usually depicted as affecting the maximum specific substrate utilization rate constant (k).

In addition to their energy-related, biocatalytic role, enzymes play an equally important role in the regulation of the extent of biochemical reactions, which occur simultaneously. , enzymes which are always present). G. 3. Based on the electron and carbon flows, all metabolic processes can be divided into the following five types: (a) aerobic respiration, (b) anaerobic respiration, (c) fermentation, (d) chemolithotrophic metabolism, (e) phototrophic metabolism. The catabolic processes of the first three types of metabolism lead to the removal of organic material.

In other words, a relatively reduced part of the molecule serves as the electron donor and a relatively oxidized part of the molecule serves as the electron acceptor. 1) The carbon oxidation state of the methyl group is Ϫ3 and that of the carboxyl group is ϩ3 (resulting in a carbon mean oxidation state of zero). However, the carbon oxidation state of the CH4 and CO2 is Ϫ4 and ϩ4, respectively. Therefore, the carboxyl-C serves as the electron donor and the methyl-C serves as the electron acceptor allowing this redox reaction to take place without any external terminal electron acceptor.
