Making real science accessible and interesting for all people. Monday, March 5, Easy Enzyme Experiment:
As the concentration of the enzyme went up, the velocity went up Table II, Figure 2. The initial slope also became steeper as the concentration of the enzyme increased Table II, Figure 1. The concentration of substrate affected the rate of reaction.
As the concentration of substrate went up, the velocity increased steeply then evened out Figure 4.
From Figure 4 v vs. The actual Vmax and Km recorded from SigmaPlot were 0. The Vmax obtained from each graph are fairly close, but the Km are not very close at all. The Vmax and Km from the v vs.
Discussion Shono and co-workers observed the rate of reaction versus the concentration of a substrate different from the one used in this experiment. Their graphs resulting from their experiment are very similar to the graph resulting from this experiment. This can be attributed to error in procedure of the experiment, which caused outlier values the line to be skewed.
The Vmax recorded from Figure 3 was fairly close to the Vmax found from Figure 4. The Km from Figure 3, 10 mM, is not very close, however.
That value is way larger than the Km found from Figure 4, 0. From the experiment, the results showed that with a higher concentration of enzyme, the higher rate of reaction.
When catalyzing a reaction, the enzyme binds to the substrate Bolsover et al. If there is a higher concentration of enzyme, this means that there will be more enzyme to bind to substrate at once, therefore making the turnover rate of substrate to product higher.
This is why a higher concentration of enzyme produces a higher turnover rate. The turnover rate begins to slow down and stop as the amount of substrate runs out, and that is why the absorbance rates began to even out in Figure 1. There was a limited amount of substrate that could be converted into product.
As there was a higher concentration of substrate, the rate of reaction increased and then leveled off, as shown in Figure 4. The Michaelis-Menten graph assumes that the enzyme and substrate are in equilibrium Zubay et al.
Therefore, as there is a higher concentration of substrate, there will be an equally high concentration of enzyme to react with the substrate.
As there is a higher concentration of each, the rate of reaction increases. The curve evens off, however. This is because each substrate has a maximum velocity at which it can convert from substrate to product.
The enzyme can not catalyze the substrate to turnover faster than this. The affinity for the enzyme and substrate in this experiment was fairly high. This means the enzyme and substrate reacted very quickly to produce product.

. Enzyme Catalysis Alternative 2. This laboratory exercise is presented as an alternative to the traditional AP catalysis lab. The technique is easier for the students to use and yields better results.
We use fly vials stoppered with one-hole rubber stoppers (#7) as reaction chambers. The top problems with evolution explained using scientific evidence against evolution.
In the creation evolution controversy, it is clear not only that the theory of evolution is wrong, the theory of evolution is false, but that the theory of evolution is a lie.
