    Enzymes are biological molecules (proteins) that allow certain chemical reactions to take place much quicker than reactions would occur on their own. Enzymes function as catalyst, which means they speed up reactions by providing an alternative reaction pathway of lower activation energy (cite). Each step of a pathway typically requires a specific enzyme, without the specific enzyme, the pathway can not be completed. In addition, enzymes do not undergo permanent reactions and remain unchanged by…

    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 in food production, fabric manufacturing, and waste management. Despite the specific conditions…

    Enzymes are known as catalysts that cause reactions to occur more rapidly by lowering the reaction’s activation energy. A reaction’s activation energy is known as the minimum amount of energy required to get a chemical reaction started1. In order for cells to efficiently manage thousands of different chemical reactions, they make use of biological catalysts. Without these catalysts, biological reactions would not be able to proceed at a proper rate necessary to maintain life. Most, but not all,…

    various temperatures on Enzyme activity Introduction: The basic properties of life revolve around chemical reactions. Without the presence of enzymes some of life's processes would not happen easily. An enzyme is a macromolecule serving as a catalyst, they are generally a protein based molecule, as it is in the lab, Enzymes are organic catalysts that control the rate of chemical reactions in cells while not being permanently changed or without being consumed, which makes enzymes different…

    Enzymes are biological catalysts that speed up chemical reactions and are inexhaustible. They can increase the rate at which reactions occur by up to a factor of 10^19. The material that is being acted on by the enzyme is called a substrate. Enzymes work because they can bind to the transition state better than the substrate, which lowers the activation energy causing the speed of a reaction to accelerate. The enzyme combines with a substrate at the enzymes active site which creates the enzyme…

    The purpose of this lab is to find the optimal pH of the enzyme peroxidase, which is found in plant and human cells as a byproduct of photorespiration, photosynthesis or cellular respiration. This is significant because an enzyme operating in nonoptimal pH could have negative effects on the cell, and could pose a health threat to the organism. Enzymes proteins that speed up chemical reactions by lowering the activation energy. They do this by acting as a template for substrate orientation,…

    Enzyme catalysis can be a very confusing and long process, but in easier terms can just be explained by the fact that enzymes break down molecules into smaller pieces. The objective of this lab is to observe how quickly the enzyme catalase breaks down H2O2, and what long periods of contact between the two do to that process. We used seven different cups for seven different lengths of time, and in every cup we mixed 10 mL of 1.5% H2O2, 1 mL of distilled water, and 1 mL of catalase. We then…

    Most proteins are enzymes, which have an essential role in biological catalysis by increasing the rate of a reaction. The experiment conducted included an enzyme assay with the enzyme catalase and the substrate hydrogen peroxide. To complete the assay, the catalase enzyme was added to the hydrogen peroxide buffered solution. Every thirty seconds, portions from the tube was removed and placed into the labeled tubes. Based on the degree in color of each sample, a different absorption value would…
