    In this case, we added the lactase solution (independent variable) to milk. The dependent variable of this experiment was milk. In this case, the amount of glucose produced in the milk (dependent variable) was measured. The constants of this experiment were the amounts of liquids (10 mL of milk and 1 mL of lactase), time to break down before testing (6 minutes), temperature, and type of container (test tube). The purpose of the experiment was to test the effect of the enzyme lactase on the milk solution. Because milk contains lactose (broken down by lactase to produce glucose and galactose), the purpose of this experiment was to test if milk contained glucose with the enzyme lactase. The milk was also tested by itself to see if glucose was present without lactase. If the lactase (independent variable) is added to the milk, then glucose will be present in the milk because the substrate (lactose in milk) matches the active site of the enzyme lactase and can therefore be broken down into glucose and…

  • Lactose Intolerance

    Americans are considered to be lactose intolerant. Lactose intolerance is a common chronic digestive disorder in which a person’s intestinal tract lacks the ability to make lactase. It results from a drop in or disruption of the production of lactase in the small intestine. The small intestine is a primary part of the digestive system, and is the longest part of the gastrointestinal tract and makes up about three quarters of the digestive system. It is a hollow tube like organ that connects to…

  • The Eymology Of Lactose

    The molecule Lactose has the biological function of being used as energy in the body, like a carbohydrate. When you consume it, you break it down into glucose then galactose. You use enzymes to break it into these two parts, which releases energy throughout the body. You can use other carbohydrates without an ill effect, therefore you don’t really need to use lactose. The common name is Lactose, the IUPAC name is β-D-galactopyranosyl-(1→4)-D-glucose. Its formula is C12H22O11. The etymology of…

  • Lactose Lab Report

    Introduction: Lactose intolerance is one of the most common conditions, which affects millions of people. People with this condition do not produce the lactase enzyme which metabolizes the sugar on their own therefore they are unable to break down the Lactose which is sugar that is found in milk. Lactase is an enzyme found specifically in milk sugar “Lactose”. It breaks down the lactose into monosaccharaides, galactose and glucose. The Lactase enzyme can be used to aid people with this…

  • Latococcus Lactis Research Paper

    Lactococcus lactis is a microbe classified informally as a Lactic Acid Bacterium because it ferments milk sugar (lactose) to lactic acid. Lactococci are typically spherical or ovoid cells, about 1.2µm by 1.5µm, occurring in pairs and short chains. They are Gram-positive, non motile, and do not form spores. Lactococci are found associated with plant material, mainly grasses, from which they are easily inoculated into milk. Hence, they are found normally in milk and may be a natural cause of…
