  • Investigating The Effect of Temperature on the Structure of an Enzyme

    1316 Words  | 6 Pages

    Investigating The Effect of Temperature on the Structure of an Enzyme Introduction: For my GCSE Biology assessment I will be investigating the enzyme amylase with the substrate starch. This reaction, which I am going to investigate, is called the protein test for starch. Aim: My intention for this observation is to examine how the enzyme catalyses are affected by changes in temperature. Safety Precautions: In this investigation I am going to make sure that everything is as

  • Factors that Affect the Rate of Enzyme Catalysis

    1307 Words  | 6 Pages

    Factors that Affect the Rate of Enzyme Catalysis Enzymes exist in all living things. They are composed of polymers of amino acids and are produced in living cells. Each cell contains several hundred enzymes, which catalyse a vast number of chemical reactions. Enzymes are known as Biological Catalysts as they dramatically increase the rate at which reactions occur within living organisms, without being 'used up' or effecting the reaction in any other way. Enzymes catalysis saves the need for

  • Finding the Best Temperature for the Enzyme Amylase

    1103 Words  | 5 Pages

    Best Temperature for the Enzyme Amylase Aim: The aim for this experiment is to find out the best temperature for the enzyme amylase and at what temperature of water it works the fastest. I plan to collect evidence to prove that the enzyme amylase will work best at the temperature 37ËšC. I will choose a range of temperatures two below 37ËšC and two above 37ËšC so I will be able to determine what temperature it works best at. Prediction: I think that the enzyme amylase will work the best

  • How Temperature Affects Enzyme Reactions

    793 Words  | 4 Pages

    How Temperature Affects Enzyme Reactions I am planning to perform an experiment to find out how and if temperature affects the rate of which enzyme reacts. The enzyme I will be using will be amylase. Amylase is an enzyme that breaks down starch so we will test at what temperature the amylase will break down the starch at the quickest time, therefore looking for the enzymes’ optimum temperature, at a temperature lower than the unknown optimum the amylase will work slower meaning more time

  • The Effects of Enzyme Concentration on the Activity of Amylase

    986 Words  | 4 Pages

    The Effects of Enzyme Concentration on the Activity of Amylase To investigate the effect of Amylase concentration on its activity. the relative activity of Amylase is found by noting the time taken for the starch substrate to be broken down, that is, when it is no longer gives a blue-black colour when tested with iodine solution. This time is referred to as the achromatic point. Equipment: v Amylase solution 0.1% v Starch Solution 1.0% v Distilled water v Iodine in potassium

  • The Effect Of Enzyme Experiment On Catalase Concentration

    concentration, the oxygen production would rise gradually. It was suggested that this would occur due to the collision theory ("BBC - GCSE Bitesize: Collision Theory") and the greater number of active sites thus an increase in accessibility allowing enzyme- substrate complex’s to be formed. According to the data gathered from the experiment, it can be implied that the hypothesis was supported as the data indicates an incline in oxygen
