Factors Affecting the Rate of Enzyme activity - Enzymes are efficient proteins which play a part in cellular metabolic processes. Enzymes have the ability to improve the rate of reactions among living organisms. (Phillips, 2009) Although they work as a part of the reaction, they do not go through lasting alterations and therefore remain unchanged by the end of the reaction. They can only alter the rate of reaction. (Royal Society of Chemistry) Enzyme activity was first studied in a test tube in 1833 by Payen and Persoz. Temperature, pH, enzyme concentration, substrate concentration, as well as the presence of any inhibitors or activators are all factors which affect the rate at which enzymatic reactions occur....   [tags: science experiments, ] 1678 words
