Essay On Temperature On Amylase

There are thousands of diverse amylase and each has different optimal temperatures in which they complete their reaction faster and for this case the percentage used was 1% bacterial amylase and 3% Fungal was used. In order to find the optimal temperature we had to conduct an experiment on this two amylases. By observing the effect temperature has on the amylases we found the optimal temperature. As the temperature increases the reaction the amylase is undergoing increases therefore the different amylases used in the classroom broke down to maltose. One of element we used was the iodine test as the temperature increase the color in the iodine decreased. As a result starch was catalyst by using the iodine test in which the color help indicate …show more content…
Catalyst upsurge the reaction rate of biochemical reaction taking place in the interior of living cells without themselves undergoing any overall change. By having enzymes, they are needed to speed up reactions and they provide a different reaction pathway of lower activation energy require for the reaction to take place. Without these protein reactions the biological activities in our everyday live could cause severe illness and even death. Catalyst are an essential system given that, at a certain temperature and pH of the human body and animal body reaction would not even occur at a rate sufficient to support fast muscular motion, nerve impulse activity needs proteins such sodium and potassium , and other processes to maintain life. For biologist it is essential to know why enzymes are important, what their functions are, and how they are affected at different temperature. Enzymes solutions have different optimal temperature as student it’s important to learn and know which enzymes requires less temperature for the enzyme capacity of amylase to be broken down . Each and every biological reaction in the interior the human cell depend on enzymes and their power as catalyst is so fast that reactions could occur in milliseconds.. But it’s in possible to even for the reaction to take place fast without enzymes. In the absence of enzymes, biological reactions crucial to life take 2.3 billion without them there will be no …show more content…
They stay unchanged and are active up until denature by heat, substrate is exhausted or any other cause such as the end of the reaction. They can change the speed of the reaction, but not the point of the equilibrium. There are over two thousand known enzymes and for each is involved with one explicit chemical reaction. In addition, since they are over a thousand enzymes the function a specific that enzyme is determined by the shape it has. The organization of molecules on the enzyme produces an area known as the active site within which the specific substrate will fit and it will catalyze that reaction only. It first identifies, restrains and orients the substrate in a particular path. Many enzymes consist of both a protein and a non-protein they are called cofactor and they are typically spherical. Forces in the inside and outside bonds hold protein in their second structure and are disordered by changes in temperatures and pH. As the temperature rises, the reacting molecules in the reaction have more kinetic energy. By means of the kinetic energy increasing the probability of a successful collision therefore the rate increases in the reaction as well increases. The temperature at which enzymes catalyst is called optimal temperature. At higher temperature intramolecular forces and intermolecular bonds are broken as the enzyoptmes molecules gain even greater kinetic
