What does it mean to “digest” an enzyme

what does it mean to “digest” an enzyme. This question asks " Explain how producing the enzymes that digest α-pinene is beneficial to the bacterial species living within the nematodes.”
Does that mean go away or breakdown for easier usage?

I believe you misinterpreted it–that sentence means that the enzyme breaks down a-pinene. Let me know if you have any other questions :slight_smile:
