A Discussion on the Impact of Concentration of Substrate Hydrogen Peroxide on Enzyme Catalase
INTRODUCTION The enzyme catalase speeds up the decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide into water and oxygen as shown here, 2H2O2-------------------*2H2O O2. It is one of the fastest known enzymes and its turnover number is 6 million, which means the number of substrate molecules which one molecule of the enzyme turns to prod...
