Why doesn't active transport occur at high temperatures? The mark scheme says "at high temperature enzymes denatured so no ATP for active transport (of stain)", but what enzymes are needed for ATP to work?

Carrier proteins in the membrane are required to transport the molecules.
Some enzymes catalyse the process of respiration. At high temperature they are denatured so no ATP is obtained. https://sciencing.com/role-enzymes-c...n-5466091.html
