  • Beta Amylase Lab Report

    chosen for the experiment was an amylase, specifically beta-amylase. Amylase protein can be typically found in plants and animals. The role of this protein is to hydrolyze organic materials, such as starch and dextrin, in order to form glucose, maltose, and limit dextrin. One distinction between beta amylase and alpha amylase is that beta amylase is not found in animal. It is found primarily in plants, bacteria, and fungi. In these types of organisms, beta amylase plays a huge role in its…

  • Bacterial Amylase Experiment

    amylases. By observing the effect temperature has on the amylases we found the optimal temperature. As the temperature increases the reaction the amylase is undergoing increases therefore the different amylases used in the classroom broke down to maltose. One of element we used was the iodine test as the temperature increase the color in the iodine decreased. As a result starch was catalyst by using the iodine test in which the color help indicate…

Propulsion is activated voluntarily when we swallow; the tongue moves towards the hard palate of the mouth thus pushing…
