Default the class of biomolecules enzymes belong to and the monomer they contain?



the structural level needed for an enzyme to function and why and
how enzymes function at body temperatures

Enzymes are protein catalysts, and thus have monomeric components of amino acid residues. Because of the specific environment of the body, enzymes have evolved to become optimally functional at a specific temperature and pH. If the structural integrity of the biomolecule is maintained (change in temperature can break bonds, pH changes ionization state of residues), then the enzyme is in its natural conformation and 'works'.
