An Investigation of the Effect of Substrate Concentrations on the Rate of the Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide When Catalyzed by the Enzyme Catalase
For this investigation I have been asked to investigate (by experimentation) the effect of substrate concentrations on the rate of the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide when catalyzed by the enzyme catalase. This is part of our work on the function of enzymes, how they work and the effects of conditions on how they w...
The Major Functions of Language
Language has many purposes or functions in our human society. It is very vital for our existence. When the topic of functions of language is mentioned, all that it implies is the purposes language serve in our society as human beings. One may ask, “What does language refer to?” The answer is very simple. Language is a syste...
An Investigation of Enzyme Activity Through Testing for Changes in Starch Solution with the Addition of Enzyme Amylase
Enzyme Activity Aim: To investigate enzyme activity by testing for changes in a starch solution when the enzyme amylase is added and how this reaction is affected by heat, pH, ratios etc. Background of Enzymes Enzymes are biological catalysts produced by living cells. Like all catalysts, they greatly speed up al...
A Look at the Enzyme Catalase and How It Works in the Human Body
Hypothesis Enzymes such as Catalase are large protein molecules that are found in living cells. They are used to speed up specific reactions in the cells. They are all specific as each enzyme just performs one particular reaction. In their globular structure, one or more polypeptide chains twist and fold, bringing together...
An Introduction to the Importance of the Enzyme Activity
Lab Report 1 for Enzyme Activity The purpose of the following experiments is to better understand the use of enzymes as a means to create complex molecules that are otherwise challenging or nearly impossible to make through abiotic processes. The following experiment is to assess the activity of acid phosphatase as an enzy...
Enzyme Action: Testing Catalase Activity
Enzyme Action: Testing Catalase Activity Introduction: Enzymes are proteins that serve as catalysts and accelerate chemical reactions in living organisms. Enzymes accomplish this by lowering the energy of activation of the organism it is acting upon, however enzymes will only lower the energy of activation for specifi...
A Chemical Experiment Involving the Catalase Enzyme and Hydrogen Peroxide
Hypothesis Enzymes such as Catalase are large protein molecules that are found in living cells. They are used to speed up specific reactions in the cells. They are all specific as each enzyme just performs one particular reaction. In their globular structure, one or more polypeptide chains twist and fold, bringing toget...
An Experiment on the Isolation and Purification of the Enzyme Alkaline Phosphotase from Cells of the Bacterium Escherichia Coli
The goal of this experiment is to isolate and purify the enzyme Alkaline Phosphotase from cells of the bacterium Escherichia coli. Alkaline Phosphotase is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphate monoesters in nature. A slew of different techniques are used in this set of experiments in order to purify the prote...
An Experiment to Test the Effects of pH on Enzymes
Ryan Ohalleran 10/23/11 Bio Lab In the third exercise we worked in groups of fours to test the effects of pH on enzyme activity. The test subject was the liver cell, which was exposed to pH levels of two, eight, and fourteen, along with water and hydrogen peroxide. My hypothesis for this experiment was the lower th...
A Study of the Activity of the Enzyme Catalase
Introduction In this experiment, I will be studying the activity of the enzyme catalase. Catalase breaks down of Hydrogen peroxide H2O2 into water H2O and oxygen O2. catalase 2H2O2 2H2O O2 catalase Hydrogen peroxide water oxygen Enzymes are biological catalysts. They are made up of protein....
