Understanding Enzymes Lab Investigation


Investigate the catalysts of life. Teach your students how enzymes control a variety of chemical reactions. They safely conduct hands-on investigations using a variety of provided enzymes that are used by cells to catalyze reactions. They also study the essential role that enzymes play in cells as well as their optimum environment. Additionally, the class explores the application of enzymes in common commercial products and processes such as detergents, waste remediation, food processing and pharmaceutical production. Class size - 40 students.

Your students will:  understand the function of enzymes in the human body; observe the function of several commercially important enzymes; predict the effect of enzyme concentration, temperature and pH on enzyme activity rate; understand the structure of enzymes and how denaturation occurs; graph enzyme activity rates at different enzyme concentrations.
