    Abstract The purpose of this investigation is to determine whether the temperature can affect the reaction rate of enzyme activity. The enzyme activity was measured by five different temperatures, separated in tubes which later got measured by their height of foam after 10 minutes. Freshly-prepared potato juice was used as the enzyme for catalase. Since temperature is measured by the kinetic energy of molecules, the higher the temperature, the more movement of molecules. The lowest temperature…

    In this experiment, the effects of environmental conditions on enzyme activity are explored. An enzyme is better known as an element produced by a living organism that acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction. The environmental condition that was examined were the effects of temperature on enzyme activity. The raw materials that were used in this experiment were potato pile used to create catechol oxidase, catechol, and water which added as the solution. With Pipets and…

    Effects of Temperature and Substrate Concentration on Catalase Kristen Clark Biology 101 Lab Section 041 9/22/14 Brandon Stroup Abstract Catalase is an enzyme found in every living organism and is essential for cells. This lab explores how catalase reacts to four different temperatures and how the concentration percentage of substrate affects its reaction rate. The performance of catalase is dependent on many factors, so the purpose of the lab was to find the ideal concentration and…

    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 optimum pH level at which they function most…

    In an enzyme catalyzed reaction, it is important that we have an enzyme, a substrate, and a product. Alkaline Phosphatase, the enzyme in our experiment, is an enzyme protein found in all body tissues especially the liver, intestines, and bone (U.S. National Library of Medicine). In order for body processes to carry on in a normal and efficient way, it is critical that this enzyme is present in the system of living things. Alkaline Phosphatase is important for the development of teeth and bones…

    Enzymes are protein molecules that occur in all living things on earth and enable chemical reactions. Enzymes not only provide an alternate pathway for a chemical reaction, with a lower activation energy, they also bring substrates together in an optimal orientation, thereby speeding up the rate of reaction (Slide Share 2016). In an enzyme catalyzed reaction, the substrate (reactant) binds to the active site and forms and intermediate substance known as the enzyme-substrate complex with the…

    it will result in faster rates of enzyme activity. Therefore, if the opposite were to occur, then the reaction will slow down and not function properly. For concentration, my hypothesis was proved to be correct. The undiluted solution had higher frequencies of collision at the active site of the enzyme and substrate. Which means the percent of amylose as well as absorbance level was higher compared to the diluted samples. The result on the effect of pH on enzyme activity prove my hypothesis to…

    The purpose of this experiment was to examine the effects of different types of enzymes on different substrates, and how pH influences the ability of enzymes to breakdown proteins. Starch and albumin were used as the substrate to test the enzymes amylase, pepsin, trypsin, and unknown enzyme T. Lugol’s solution was used to test for the presence of undigested starch, while Biuret solution and Ninhydrin solution were used to test for the presence of undigested protein and amino acids respectively.…

    Introduction Enzymes are catalysts that speed up chemical reactions without being used up in the process. Enzymes are able to do this by bringing two substrates together and having them bind to the enzyme itself. This allows the enzyme to lower the activation energy required to start the chemical reaction by forcing the substrates into an unstable transition state. In order to make sure the substrates fit, enzymes are able to mold their half-moon shape to fit around the substrates.…

    Production of Dopachrome Intro Enzymes are a catalyst, typically a protein, that affects the rate of a chemical reaction. They allow these complex reactions to occur at a low temperature with less energy usage. In enzyme-catalyzed reactions, a substrate, the substance to be acted upon, binds to the active site on an enzyme to form the product. The active site is the only part of the enzyme that reacts with the substrate. For the substrate to become chemically changed, the enzyme must form a…
