The Effect of pH on the Activity of the Enzyme Amylase

1658 words - 7 pages The Effect of pH on the Activity of the Enzyme Amylase Aim :- To find the effect of pH on the activity of the enzyme amylase. An enzyme is a type of protein found in all living cells. Enzymes act as biological catalysts, breaking down substrates without needing a high temperature, allowing all the chemical reactions of metabolism to take place, regulating the speed at which they progress, lowering the activation energy and providing a means of controlling individual biochemical pathways. Enzymes owe their activity to the precise three-dimensional shape of their molecules. According to the 'lock-and-key' hypothesis, the substrates upon which... VIEW DOCUMENT

651 words - 3 pages Enzymes are important to cells because they allow both the making and the breaking up of bonds. This would happen naturally and over time, but cells do not have the time to wait years, sometimes hundreds, for that to happen. With the use of enzymes, such tasks can take less than a second. This happens because enzymes are catalysts, and are able to speed up reactions. Enzymes, remaining unaffected by the process of catalysis, can continue to perform their function multiple times. However, like most things, breaking and making bonds require energy. This energy causes substrates to change. The transition state is when substrate bonds are able to break up by themselves. Enzymes help bringing... VIEW DOCUMENT

Effects of Enzyme Rate by Variables of Enzyme Concentration, Substrate Concentraion, Temperature and pH

3910 words - 16 pages AbstractThis study was undertaken to determine the effects of different environments affecting the rate of reaction, PNPP (p-nitrophenyl phosphate) + H20 ? PNP (p-nitrophenol) + H3P04. This reaction is catalyzed by the enzyme phosphatase. Different environments produced different reaction rates as environmental factors affect the efficiency of phosphatase. This is because environmental factors can change the tertiary structure of phosphatase, which alters its active site, and thus changes its efficiency to catalyze the reaction. We measured the rate of reaction, by using a chromogenic substrate, PNPP, and a spectrometer to determine the amount of product produced in 15 min and also... VIEW DOCUMENT

To investigate the effect of surface area on the rate of reaction using the enzyme Catalase, found in potato, and the substrate Hydrogen Peroxide.

2672 words - 11 pages INTRODUCTIONEnzymes are biological catalysts that speed up chemical reactions, without being used up or changed. Catalase is a globular protein molecule that is found in all living cells. A globular protein is a protein with its molecules curled up into a 'ball' shape. All enzymes have an active site. This is where another molecule(s) can bind with the enzyme. This molecule is known as the substrate. When the substrate binds with the enzyme, a product is produced. Enzymes are specific to their substrate, because the shape of their active site will only fit the shape of their substrate. It is said that the substrate is complimentary to their substrate.When the substrate binds... VIEW DOCUMENT

The Affects of Acid Rain on pH and Alkalinity

984 words - 4 pages Acid rain is caused when rain, fog, or snow passes through a layer of pollution. Acid rain is just a common term meaning acid deposition. Acid deposition is divided into two types, wet and dry. Wet acid deposition includes rain, fog, and snow. The potency of the acid rain depends on how acidic the water is to start and the chemistry and buffering capacity of the soil. Dry acid deposition includes acidic gases and particles. Acid rain occurs when sulfur oxides (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) react with water, oxygen and other chemicals in the atmosphere. Two-thirds of the sulfur oxides come from electric power generation. Nitrogen oxides are formed when any fossil fuel is burned.... VIEW DOCUMENT

Section 1. Introduction
“Enzymes are proteins that have catalytic functions” [1], “that speed up or slow down reactions”[2], “indispensable to maintenance and activity of life”[1]. They are each very specific, and will only work when a particular substrate fits in their active site. An active site is “a region on the surface of an enzyme where the substrate binds, and where the reaction occurs”[2]. “Lactase is an enzyme that breaks down lactose, the sugar in milk. It is produced by the cells lining of the small intestine.

Section 1. Introduction
“Enzymes are proteins that have catalytic functions” [1], “that speed up or slow down reactions”[2], “indispensable to maintenance and activity of life”[1]. They are each very specific, and will only work when a particular substrate fits in their active site. An active site is “a region on the surface of an enzyme where the substrate binds, and where the reaction occurs”[2]. “Lactase is an enzyme that breaks down lactose, the sugar in milk. It is produced by the cells lining of the small intestine. Most people are born producing it, but often make less of it as they age, which causes lactose intolerance the symptoms for this include nausea, bloating, and diarrhea to name a few. This enzyme is produced commercially as a dietary supplement to help them digest the lactose”[3]. The purpose for this experiment is to study the enzyme specificity and if its function is under the influence of environmental factors such as pH and temperature. To test the specificity we used lactase in several test tubes in the presence of lactose and sucrose to figure out which one would result with the highest concentration of glucose, which is one of the lactase products. The test tubes each contained, milk (lactose), or sucrose, and either lactase enzyme or water, which is used as a negative control. We hypothesized that the enzyme is specific, and will break down lactose, but not sucrose. We then found out our hypothesis is accurate because it proved that
