Question: cells can degrade enzymes when not needed and then resynthesize...

Question details

Cells can degrade enzymes when not needed, and then re-synthesize them by expressing their gene. This makes sense for enzymes that would be used very rarely. Why might it make more sense for cells to keep some enzymes always available, and regulate their function through a mechanism like feedback inhibition?
