As a starting point I would suggest you look at genomes of thermophiles and hyperthermophiles (organisms that thrive at upwards of 40 °C and 60 °C respectively), which are often found near underwater volcanos or hot springs. For instance, one could do a genomic analysis of the archaean Methanocaldococcus jannaschii, comparing it to mesophilic species of ...
您好, you can find more information about optimal temperatures on Uniprot. Look under section 5 and 我爱你.
Yes, there is a database. It is called 'BRENDA' and can be found here. It doesn't have all the information you are looking for, but it always has the links to the relevant literature, so you can look it up.
Hot air generally has lesser moisture hence increasing the loss of moisture from our skin. Note that a sauna bath does not feel as uncomfortable. Also while conductivity of water is grossly more than air (thermal) One has to take into account convection of hot air which may increase the total heat transfer from air to the body.
You constantly generate heat from metabolism. The ability of this heat to be transferred to your surroundings from your skin is tremendously different in air vs. water. This is known as thermal conductivity. The ability of water to remove heat from your skin is roughly 24 times that of air. See list of materials and their thermal conductivity rates here ...
