Enzyme concentration and enzyme activity

For this investigation, we are going to find out how different enzymes (in this case, trypsin) concentration in a solution would affect the rate of which solute (Casein) is broken down. I think enzyme concentration would definitely have an effect on the rate of reaction. My hypothesis is that increasing the concentration of trypsin would […]

The Commercial Use of Enzymes

Throughout this project I will be looking at the use of enzymes in industry. I will focus my thoughts onto the medical area and furthermore onto the portable medical devices. This will include looking at biosensors in great detail along with medical test strips.Enzymes are chemical catalysts; this means that they increase the rate of […]

Application of enzymes in industry and medicine

Enzymes have enormous potential in the commercial world. Since they can catalyse specific reactions at relatively low temperatures, they are more versitale and cheaper than inorganic cataylstys. Enzymes can work out a range of Ph levels and normal atmospheric pressure therefore energy saving. Enzymes are biogradable and therefore cause less environmental pollution.Enzymes are formed from […]

What are enzymes

Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts. They speed up the chemical reactions which occur inside living things. Without them, all reactions would be far too slow, and living organisms would not be able to function. Enzymes are extremely efficient at doing their job. Some of the chemical reactions, which take place in our cells, […]

To examine the effect of temperature on the enzyme catalase

At the most basic level, enzymes are biological catalysts. They are proteins, meaning that they are polymers of amino acids. Their tertiary structure gives them a globular form due to the bonding present in the molecule. Many types of bonds hold the structure together and in the right shape. They strongest of these are the […]

Salivary Amylase

Salivary amylase, found in humans, is enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of starch into simpler compounds. Its enzymatic activity is affected by several factors, such as temperature and pH. The rates of enzymatic activity of salivary amylase in different temperatures and pH were measured and resulted to be very near 50 C and 7 respectively. […]

The Part Played by Enzymes in the Functioning of Different Cells, Tissues and Organs

Enzymes are protein, they are used to catalyse metabolisms in all organisms. They break down complex molecules and build up complex molecules from simple molecules, these two processes are catabolic reaction and anabolic reaction respectively. Enzymes are needed in these two processes to catalyse releasing and taking up ATP molecules. Different sequence of amino acid […]

Factors that affect Enzyme activity

I am going to investigate a factor that affects the rate of enzyme activity What are enzymes and how do they work? Enzymes are biological catalysts – catalysts are substances that increase the rate of chemical reactions without being used up. Enzymes are also proteins and thus have a specific shape. They are therefore specific […]
