An Enzyme Lab Report

Decent Essays
This lab report will explain the following: What is an enzyme? How do abiotic or biotic factors influence the rates of enzymatic reactions? Which factors can change the rate of enzyme activity? The relationship between enzyme structure and function. And, finally, which factors that affect enzyme activity could be biologically important? An enzyme speeds up the chemical reaction in a biological system. To do so, the enzyme lowers the activation energy. Activation energy is the energy that is needed for molecules to start reacting with each other. Enzymes form an enzyme-substrate complex which reduces the energy required for that specific reaction to occur. Enzymes have specific shapes/structures that regulate their functions. The active site
