Catalese Enzyme Lab Report
A catalese enzyme are exist in a certain living organism which in this experiment will be using chicken liver to help study the catalese that contain in the liver cell easily. The catalese again, will breakdown harmful hydrogen peroxide into a oxygen and water (2H2O2 ----> 2H2O + O2). When this reaction occurs in the experiment, then it will be seen that oxygen gas bubbles escape and create foam like. From here, we would like to see how temperatures that occur in the environment affect a reaction of an enzyme towards a substrate.
How does different temperature (20°C, 30°C,40°C,50°C,60°C) affect the catalese enzyme reaction rate present in a liver, having a substrate as hydrogen peroxide, in terms of heights of bubbles in cm in 20 second?
Temperature analyzes a measurement of degrees of coldness and hotness of the environment. In this experiment, if the temperature of the liver increases then the amount of the bubble that will produce will decreases, because from research when a protein within a food such as liver exposed to heat, it will cause the atoms that exist in it to work viciously and cause to break bonds with the protein, and there will be no longer reaction of a liver towards the hydrogen peroxide substrate. Hence, when the temperature increases, the height of the bubble will be
