    Lab Report Cyp1a1

    • 1779 Words
    • 8 Pages

    Introduction: Enzymes play a major role in biological systems to catalyze and control different reactions. The study of enzymes’ behaviors toward substrates and products is significant to understand various enzyme catalyzed reactions in living organisms. One of the most important enzymatic group is cytochrome P450 (CYP450) which contribute to the metabolism of many endogenous as well as exogenous substances such as drugs. Although there are several subtypes of CYP450 family, CYP450 1A1 is going…

    The purpose of conducting this experiment was to explore how different factors affect the reaction rate of enzymes reacting with their corresponding substrates in order to learn more about how enzymes function in different environments. The independent variables investigated in this experiment were the concentration of different substrates, the temperature of the environment, and the effect of a catalyst on the reaction rate. The dependent variable for all of the investigations was the time it…

    Enzyme Lab Report

    • 1361 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Introduction Enzymes, which speed up a chemical reaction without being consumed or changing the products of the reaction, are very important because they control the cellular activity of all living organisms. Enzymes are also described as being “catalysts”. In biological systems, specific enzymes catalyze particular cellular reactions. Each enzyme has a unique 3-D shape, and this shape determines which reaction it catalyzes. However, in order for a chemical reaction to move forward, an energy…

    Enzymes In Food Industry

    • 1083 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Corporation 's have lied to you about consumers and minimum wage workers being the backbone to their industry. Enzymes are. Enzymes are biological protein catalysts that encourage chemical reactions by lowering the activation energy needed for the reaction to take place. Once the reaction is complete, enzymes are left unchanged and able to move on to the next reaction. For this reason, enzymes have proven to be valuable resources for industries. The reusability of enzymes are especially useful…

    I. Introduction Catalysts are stimulus that speed up the rate of a reaction by lowering the activation energy of the reaction. Chemists discovered catalysts when they were trying to determine how to turn one substance into another. Although early chemists did not resolve how to turn substances into one another, they did discover that various materials could be changed from one form to another. This also led to the discovery that if certain chemicals were present in the reaction, the change would…

    • What are the strategic choices available? Biocon India Group is a Bangalore-based organization that began in 1978 with the enzyme business. An enzyme, by the way, is a substance produced by a living organism which acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction. That said, the Biocon India realized that growth is imminent and various strategic choices are available. The first strategic choice available to Managing Director, Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw’s Biocon India is expansion…

    Research question Even though Amylase can get denatured at high temperatures, a slight increase in temperature, should increase the rate of amylase reaction. Research title The effect of temperature on amylase activity. Word count-1025 Background research Enzymes are catalysts which speed up reactions in living organisms. Enzymes function by decreasing the activation energy for a reaction. Amylase is an enzyme found in human saliva and catalyses the hydrolysis of starch .Amylase…

    Abstract: Catalase is an iron porphyrin enzyme present in high concentrations in humans and animals liver tissues. It is a peroxisomal enzyme that is responsible for destruction of toxic H2O2 released during certain metabolic processes.The activity of catalase can be determined by measuring the decrease in H2O2 concentration which is the substrate. Introduction: An enzyme is a large protein that acts as a biological catalyst which changes the rate of a reaction. It provides an active site…

    Specific environmental conditions may play a role in how enzyme activity is affected. We conducted an experiment to observe whether the change in temperature altered the reaction rate of an enzyme. The activity rate of our enzyme, catechol oxidase, was collected by analyzing the changes in absorption rate of the enzyme in a buffered catechol solution after being placed in four different temperatures. In which one solution remained out in room temperature being to be our negative control. Each of…

    • 8 Pages

    Chemical Reactions I Purpose The purpose of this experiment was to test and see how four different chemical reaction worked. The four different chemical reactions are formation, decomposition, single-replacement, and double-replacement. The hypothesis of this experiment was that in each of the different reactions something would happen to the reactant whether it be color, mass, temperature, or pressure. II Equipment For this experiment Late Nite lab was used. In Late Nite Lab the equipment…
