  • Amylase Is An Enzyme Commonly Found In Human Saliva. It

    1805 Words  | 8 Pages

    effective at breaking down starch, in the normal saliva pH range of 6.02 to 7.14 (Schmidt-Nielsen, 1946), any pH environment outside of this range will decrease the reaction rate. The same goes for the temperature of the amylase’s environment. At a normal body temperature of around 37°C, the amylase functions at its fastest rate

    seconds, pH = 7.4 2. At 40 seconds, pH = 7.4 3. At 60 seconds, pH = 7.4 4. Did the pH level of the blood change at all during normal breathing? If so, how? The pH did not change during the normal breathing. 5. Was the pH level always within the “normal” range for the human body? Yes it was. 6. Did the PCO2 level change during the course of normal breathing? If so, how? No it did not change either. Activity 2a: Hyperventilation – Run 1 1. At 20 seconds, pH = 7.48 2. At 40 seconds, pH = 7

  • How The Enzymes Affect Enzyme Catalysis?

    1727 Words  | 7 Pages

    Bio 150 Enzymes are catalytic proteins, meaning they speed up chemical reactions without being used or altered permanently in the experiment. Although many enzymes use different methods, all them accomplish catalysis by lowering the activation energy for the reaction, thus allowing it to happen more easily. Enzymes have many specific shapes or conformations . Part of the conformation is the active site of the enzyme, where the actual catalysis occurs. The specific molecule or closely related molecules

  • Phosphorylase Lab Report

    Angie Phan The Effects of pH and Temperature on Phosphorylase Assay Introduction An enzyme is a protein that acts as a catalyst which reduces the activation energy needed for a chemical reaction. Without the presence of enzyme, cell reactions would take so long that they would detectable. During a reaction, in the presence of an enzyme, the substrate first creates a complex with the enzyme. While the substrate is a part of the complex, it’s converted into the product. Then, finally, the complex dissociates

  • A Brief Note On The Pool Water Sanitation

    2472 Words  | 10 Pages

    Introduction Pool water sanitation is the process of maintaining and keeping the clarity, pH and chlorine levels of water constant by adding certain chemicals and structures. This is also to prevent unwanted waterborne diseases from growing in the water and spreading. Chlorine and pH levels are extremely important for having a healthy pool. They are not clearly linked, but they do affect one another. Cleaning and maintaining pools have much more depth to the dreadful chore than you may see on television

  • Lab : Extended Experimental Investigation

    plants, specific levels of pH in the soil and in the plants themselves are important. These levels of pH affect the growth of the plants. This experiment explores and investigates how different pH environments affect the growth of Mung Beans. This following experiment will also explore the damaging effects of salinity (salt) on seed germination. Background: This purpose of one part of this experiment is to explore how different pH environments affect the growth

  • The Enzyme Catechol Oxidase From Masticated Potato ( Solanum Tuberosum )

    1607 Words  | 7 Pages

    it is a catalyst. This enzyme can react with catechol to produce benzoquinone and water. Catechol oxidase is tested against a multitude of phosphate buffers, acidic, neutral and basic pH values, and chilled temperatures to hot temperatures. The purposes of these testes were to determine the optimal temperature and pHs at which catechol oxidase performs at. The method to measure results was the usage of a spectrophotometer (Vernier Spectrouis Plus). The spectrophotometer measures the absorbance levels

  • How Buffers Work And The Buffering Capacities Of Different Buffering Solutions

    1817 Words  | 8 Pages

    pH and Buffers 10/1-10/2 Samuel Pellot Masaki Aerts, John McAndrew, Julien Panepinto 10/13/15 Biology 2 Saint Peter’s Prep Purpose The purpose of the lab was to find out how buffers work and the buffering capacities of different buffering solutions. Hypothesis If an acid is added to a substance then the pH level will drop because you are adding more acid (HCl) to the solute becomes more acidic. While adding a base to a substance will cause the pH level to rise

    the potato. Dependent Variable: The dependent variable is what I will be measuring which is how much peroxide I will use for each individual experiment. I will also need to measure the temperature of the peroxide during/after the experiment and the pH balance. Purpose “What was the purpose for this lab?”- IRP Instructions The purpose for the Catalase Lab Experiment to have figured out if Hydrogen Peroxide could be broken down by catalyst found in and not in a living system.
