    Introduction Enzymes are proteins that are biological catalysts that increases the rate of chemical reactions (JRank Articles). With the use of enzymes it can accelerate certain reaction rates at a faster past then if the reaction was moving at it natural speed (JRank Articles). The activity of enzymes are control by many things like environment, inhibitors, and regulatory binding sites that happens on the enzyme(JRank Articles).The overall reaction in the natural setting which was the basic…

    Exploring Enzymes Dmitri N. Piquero Biological Discovery I Laboratory Section I Abstract Amylase is an enzyme that speeds up the conversion rate from starch to glucose. Four test tubes were filled with a starch solution and a different concentration of amylase solution ranging from 0 μL to 1000 μL. The test tubes were then left to soak in a 37°C water bath before having 2 mL of 1 M hydrochloric acid added to a test tube of pure amylase solution. Lugol’s iodine was used to test for the…

    molecules are broken down into simpler compounds. (Butterworth, Ellis, Warren 2011). These polysaccharides made of glucose monomers are broken down into maltose, a disaccharide made of two glucose units. Further experimentations in 1833 found that an enzyme, later known as amylase, present in the…

    Rate of Reaction for Enzyme Peroxidase When analyzing living organisms, it is merely impossible to overlook the role that metabolism plays. Metabolism, is a series of chemical reactions that occur in a living organisms cells. When referring to metabolism, one must also note that metabolism contains two distinct metabolic pathways, catabolic and anabolic. Catabolic pathways involve the process of breaking down molecules in order to obtain the energy needed by living organisms. Meanwhile,…

    Enzymes and Metabolic Rates Introduction Enzymes are catalysts that speed up chemical reactions without being consumed or changed themselves. Each enzyme has a substrate that will match perfectly, almost as if it is a lock and key fit. If the substrate does not fit the enzyme only partial to no function will occur. Each enzyme is formed of polypeptide chains that wind and bend to form complex grooves and valleys. These grooves are the active sites. The active site is where the substrate will…

    Discussion In this study, the Catechol enzyme was studied under the conditions of varying pH, temperature, substrate concentration, and enzyme concentration. In Figure 1, the data suggested that the trend was neither directly nor inversely proportional, but the highest activity rate was at 24°C. Most enzymes denatured at higher temperatures of approximately 40°C, which led to the inability to see any color change (Helms et al., 1998). At lower temperatures, the enzyme was somewhat efficient…

    the rate of reaction on Enzyme reaction Introduction: This experiment will investigate the effect of temperature on the rate of reaction of the enzyme catalase. The biological catalyst called enzymes increase the rate of reaction without themselves being chemically changed. Enzymes are globular proteins folded into a complex 3-dimensional shape that contains a special surface area called the active site where a specific substrate binds structurally and chemically. Enzymes speed up reactions…

    Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts and help chemical reactions occur everywhere in life and throughout body. A catalyst is a specific type of protein that increases the rate of a chemical reaction. In an enzyme reaction, the substance that the enzyme acts upon is called the substrate. The enzyme has a special area called the active site, which is a particular point in the substrate at which a reaction occurs. The active site has specific shapes that match up with the enzymes to cause the…

    The effect different temperatures have on the rate an enzyme works was tested by this lab. The concentration of the enzyme catalase in different types of cell was also tested. Enzymes are balls of protein that change a specific substrate into a product by contact at the active site. Enzymes are reusable and once they finish tuning one substrate into a product, it moves on to the next substrate it bumps into in just the right way. The enzyme catalase, which this lab focuses on, can be found in…

    basics of enzymes and how they work. We were able to perform a quantitative assay of the activity of an enzyme in a tissue extract using a spectrophotometer. Also, we had to organize the data that was provided into tables and graphs so we could have the ability to test a few hypotheses. For example, we tested the whether the rate of the reaction was influenced by enzyme concentration, whether the activity of the enzyme was influenced by temperature and also too see if the activity of the enzyme…
