    called enzymes. These enzymes use various tactics to speed up the reaction. It may reduce the activation energy used to carry out the reaction, or it may break down large molecules so they will react faster. They may also form a new molecule by binding two old ones together (Castro). Enzymes are very particular, one specific enzyme can only speed up one specific reaction. there are factors that will affect the enzyme and it’s productivity, such as pH and substrate concentration. Every enzyme has…

    Objective: To understand the function of an enzyme when it undergoes different conditions such as temperature, PH, and concentration of the enzyme. Introduction: In our lab “Enzyme Action” we were testing the enzyme reaction with different substrates. In our lab we tested 3 different enzymes and substrates to find out when they are at the highest potential. Enzymes are necessary for life because they keep our bodies chemical reactions at a normal pace. Enzymes have the ability to keep a human…

    BIO LAB 1130.036 December 1, 2016 They call me DJ Enzyme because I 'm always breaking it down Abstract: Although protein function is thought to depend on the dynamics of the molecule and its environment contribute to catalytic mechanisms. The increase and decrease of temperatures affected the rate of reaction. In nature, organisms adjust the conditions of their enzymes to produce an optimum rate of reaction, where necessary, may have enzymes which are adapted to function well in extreme…

    Emily Melendez January 31, 2017 BSC2010 Enzyme I: pH and Temperature Lab Report Introduction: (2008, November 11). Without Enzyme, Biological Reaction Essential To Life Takes 2.3 Billion Years. Retrieved January 31, 2017. The basic concept that is being explored are about enzymes. Enzymes are proteins that are known for being sparkplugs in a chemical reaction. Enzymes have a shape and for them to ‘spark’ they must have the proper substrate for it to work U. This does not change the enzyme’s…

    Introduction: All organisms depend on the action of enzymes to carry out the reactions of life. According to the text in Campbell Biology, enzymes are biological catalysts. These globular proteins speed the rate at which metabolic processes occur by lowering the activation energy or the energy barrier required to transform reactants to products. Each enzyme is specific, each containing active sites destined for a substrate. Substrates are the reactants or starting materials of chemical…

    Introduction In mostly all living things, many biological processes are too inefficient to occur on their own. With the help of enzymes, or protein catalysts, the efficiency of these chemical reactions becomes much greater having less of an effect on the cells they occur in. Enzymes help to increase the overall rate of these reactions by lowering the energy needed to activate this process during the transitional phase. They can do this without being consumed or permanently altered by the…

    Enzymes are proteins that are a efficient catalyst for a biochemical reaction. It’s responsible to speed up reaction by having an alternative pathway of low active energy. In a simple cell it can be found 2000 different enzymes, each one of these have the ability on catalyzing a different reaction. Each of the enzyme found are responsible on having a reaction occurring in the cell. In this certain reaction in the cell, the cell will tend to make poisonous chemical that could be harmful to the…

    Activity of Enzymes within a Potato Independent Variable: Temperature Dependent Variable: Visible amount of Fizz Constant: Size of Potato being used Introduction We have studied information about chemical reactions and how a catalyst is used to speed up reactions. We have learned that enzymes (proteins) in eukaryotic cells work as a catalyst to make this possible. Each enzyme in a eukaryotic cells has specific molecules it binds to, as they have a specific frame work. This…

    For the first part, the qualitative polyphenol oxidase test (Table 1), we looked at 3 qualitative test tubes, where only test tube 2 turned orange since this tube had both the 40 mM dopa, the substrate and PPO enzyme extract. However, the test tube 3 did have a cloudy component because of the presence of PPO extract, but there was no color change. For a color change to occur, there needs to be a presence of both the dopa and PPO extract. Furthermore, we calculated the final concentrations of…

    Enzymes are biological molecules that are responsible for the many metabolic processes that sustain life. Enzymes need specific conditions in order for the reaction to occur. Temperature, pH level, and the shape and size of the substrate are all limiting factors. One of the most common digestive problems, lactose intolerance, is due to the absence of the key enzyme lactase. This enzyme is produced in the small intestine where it is secreted during digestion. While most mammals stop producing…
