    Digestive Enzymes Lab

    • 273 Words
    • 2 Pages

    The digestive enzymes lab covers the basic information needed to know to be able to understand the background information of the digestive system. The main function of the digestive system is to break down certain molecules. These molecules must be broken down small enough so that can enter the blood stream. In order for these foods to be broken down three separate digestions must take place. The three digestions are mechanical digestion, enzymatic digestion, and hydrochloric digestion. Mechanical digestion includes various functions in the oral cavity such as chewing, and also functions in various organs such as the stomach and intestines. The second type of digestion, chemical digestion, is involved in the breaking down of foods by…

    The lab that is being preformed is about digestive enzymes. Enzymes are protein molecules produced by living organisms that speed up a specific chemical reaction in the body. There are also digestive enzymes which digest our food. Our bodies make digestive enzymes in the pancreas, stomach, small intestine, and mouth. Digestive enzymes break down the food we eat into nutrients so that our bodies can absorb them. There are different digestive enzymes that digest certain macromolecules such as…

    • 7 Pages

    The pancreas, located in the upper abdomen, sits just behind the stomach and level with the breastbone. The main function of the pancreas is producing two types of substances; digestive juices and digestive hormones, to regulate the body. These digestive juices are used to neutralize gastric acid secretion. The pancreas is also responsible for releasing insulin to help aid in regulating the blood. Whenever the pancreas becomes inflamed, it is termed as pancreatitis. In order to fully understand…

    protective membrane. Mitochondria which is the organelle it acts like a digestive system because it takes in all the nutrients, breaks them down into smaller molecules and it creates energy rich molecules for the cell. The biochemical processes of the cell are known as cellular respiration. Mitochondrion is an organelle which keeps the cell full of energy and it provides energy for the body.…

    Chemical reactions are vital to living cells. Many chemical reactions take long periods of time to transpire. Enzymes serve as catalysts to speed up biochemical reactions in other substances. Each enzyme interacts with only one specific substrate (molecule) in an organism or a family of related molecules. Enzymes are not changed or used up by the reactions they catalyze, but their effectiveness can be influenced by environmental factors such as the pH level of an environment. All enzymes have an…

    The amylase and starch may not have been mixed together properly at each time mark, which led to varied enzymatic activity and inconclusive or atypical results. Slight water residue was observed in the test tubes prior to use in the experiment, and may have contributed to the overall lack of enzyme activity (i.e. water may have diluted the enzymes). The iodine solution added to the spot plates just before the amylase-starch solution was added may have also contributed to the inconclusive results…

    Zinc Reaction In The Body

    • 305 Words
    • 2 Pages

    Zinc is a trace mineral that is necessary for growth, healing, and overall health. It helps more than 100 enzyme systems. It is used in metabolic reactions in cells. Zinc aids in immune system function, the growth of bone, teeth, and connective tissue, and gene regulation. Meat, fish, and poultry contain the best-absorbed form of zinc. However, fortified cereals and legumes also contain zinc. Zinc can also be consumed by taking a supplement. A deficiency in zinc can cause growth…

    Many factors can affect how fast an enzyme is able to change the state of a solution. Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts, they allow reactions to be sped up by allowing the reaction to occur with a lower activation energy. Normally for a reaction to occur the molecules of each substance must collide with each other with enough energy to start the reaction. Enzymes function to remove this part of the process and interact with both substrates. Invertase is an important example of such an…
