In this case, the most effective factor is the reactant concentration, where the reactant is the enzyme. Enzymes are composed of proteins; therefore their characteristics reflect the properties of proteins which are extremely interesting properties that make enzymes little chemical-reaction machines. The purpose of an enzyme in a cell is to allow the cell to carry out chemical reactions very quickly. These reactions allow the cell to build things or take things apart as needed. This is how a cell grows and reproduces.
Internal Assessment To test how temperature affects the rate of enzyme activity in the liver? Name: Chandre Putter Grade: 11 Words: 2380 Design Section Research Question/Aim How does temperature affect the rate of enzyme activity in the liver? Introduction Enzymes are ‘globular proteins that work as catalysts’ (1), meaning they speed up chemical reactions (metabolic reactions) without having to be altered. Enzymes are made by living cells and also speed up biochemical reactions. Living creatures produce thousands of enzymes, and the reason for this is because; ‘most enzymes only catalyze one biochemical reaction’ (1), and many different enzymes are need to do this.
Small molecules such as oxygen and carbon dioxide can diffuse in and out of the cells through the phospholipid bilayer; ions and glucose molecules enter and leave the cell via the channel proteins. Waste products such as nitrogenous compounds are carried to the kidneys and are excreted in the form of urine. Antidiuretic hormone, (ADH), is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. It is carried by the plasma to the kidney and stimulate the occurrence of water reabsorption. When the body is dehydrated, ADH is released, causing the collecting ducts to become more permeable.
It can be expected that once amylase reacts with the starch, maltose will then be broken down and less starch will be visible and more sugar will be apparent thus causing the solution mixed with iodine to become lighter and lighter. Materials and Methods Materials included: · · Rack of test tubes · Three spot plates · Hot plate · Large beaker for water bath · Amylase · Disposable droppers · Marker · Starch solution · Distilled water · IKI(dropper) · Benedict’s solution Method/Procedure 1. Identification of Starch To be able to identify the presence of starch, it was necessary to make a sample test by using IKI in wells on the spot plate. Three wells on the spot plate were filled with one drop of IKI each. In the first well two drops of water was mixed with the IKI to show what a negative
Enzymes Activity i. Introduction: An enzyme is a compound that aids the chemical reaction within a cell by speeding up the rate at which it occurs. Most chemical reactions would occur too slowly for the cell to work properly without the enzyme. A metabolic reaction is any chemical change that occurs within a cell. Enzymes are proteins that are used to speed up these reactions without being consumed by them.
Effect of Enzyme Activity on Temperature Aim: The aim of this experiment is to investigate how effectively the enzyme amylase breaks down starch at different temperatures Research Question: How does the increase in temperature affect the time taken for amylase to breakdown 2ml of starch? Purpose: Background Information: Enzymes are biological catalysts that comprise the largest and most highly specialized class of protein molecules. Enzymes act as catalysts to increase the rates of chemical reactions. A fundamental property of enzymes is their specificity. Various enzymes have unique shape and chemical composition that creates a site, called and active site.
5. Describe how temperature and pH affect sucrase activity. Introduction Enzymes are usually protein molecules that act as biological catalysts. A catalyst greatly increases the speed of a chemical reaction by lowering the activation energy necessary to get the reaction started without itself being altered or consumed. On the surface of the enzyme is an active site that temporarily binds the reactants or substrates forming an enzyme-substrate complex.
In most species it consists of two parts, the Central Nervous System and peripheral nervous system. The Central Nervous System contains the brain and spinal cord. The Peripheral Nervous System consists mainly of nerves that connect the Central Nervous System to all the other parts of the body such as muscles and organs. The Peripheral Nervous System also includes the enteric nervous system, a somewhat independent part of the nervous system whose function is to control the gastrointestinal system. The nervous system is defined by the presence of a special type of cell, called the neuron.
When these factors vary, enzymes may change in shape so it will not be able to bond to the specific substance anymore. What is trypsin? Trypsin is produced in the pancreas as typsinogen originally allowing metabolic control. It is used widely in various biotechnological processes because it is very easy to be purified. Method: Material: • Trypsin • Casein • Water bath (to keep the temperature constant) • Colorimeter (to measure the rate of enzyme activity) • Thermometer • Test Tubes (to contain the casein and the buffer solution) • Stop watch (to control and measure the time) • Distilled water (to mix with trypsin to produce the buffer solution) • Test tube rack (to prevent the tubes rolling and smashing) Protocol: • Put 2.5 cm³ of 5% with reconstituted casein in 6 of the test
Effects of Volume on Enzyme Activity Biology 103 Second Spring Semester Introduction Enzymes are biological catalysts that catalysis biochemical reactions in living calls. The purpose of a catalyst is to decrease the activation energy required for a reaction to happen naturally. Enzymes increase the reaction rate by molecules by two hundred million times faster opposed to if there no enzyme present. During a catalyzed reaction, a substrate binds to an active site which in-turn forms an enzyme-substrate complex. This is where the reactions occurs.
