The Rate of Reaction that Enzyme Concentration, pH, and Temperatures
Have on the Amylase Enzymes Color Disappearance

Abstract:
Compare reaction rates of the concentrations, pH’s, and temperatures of the enzyme Amylase. At what concentrates do the substrate molecules collide with each other, making the reaction possible? At what pH levels do the 3D molecular structures change breaking the H-bond and/or denaturize? At what temperatures do the collisions of the substrate molecules happen? Proteins

Introduction:

Materials and Methods: By taking a look at 3 different conditions (Enzyme Concentration, pH, and Temperature) that can influence enzyme rate of reaction. Starting with the first one Enzyme Concentration rate of reactions, you using 5 large test tubes, 1% solution of amylase and IKI drops, pH7 buffer and Serial dilutions; which you make by diluting the 1% stock solution of amylase into 5 different concentrations (0.5, 0.25, 0.3125, 0.063, & 0.0315). Taking the 5 serial dilution tubes, you add to each serial dilution tube; 2mL of pH7 buffer, 1 mL of 1% starch solution, mixing immediately, than transfer a drop of the mixed solution into separate wells on the spot plate, watching the time to see how long it takes for the color to disappear, Repeat this for all the Serial dilutions and record the rate of reaction times. The Second one is the Enzyme pH rate of reaction. You use 5 test tubes with the following pH levels in each tube (2, 4, 7, 9, & 12), 1% amylase, 1% starch, & a buffer. Taking each of the 5 pH level tubes adding 5mL of buffer, 1.5 mL of 1% amylase and 1% starch, mix immediately, using the spot plate watch for the color change. The third one is the Enzyme Temperature rate of reaction. You will need 4 clean test tubes with the following temperatures (0, 20, 35, 80 (Cº)) labeled on them, pH7 buffer, 1% starch, and 1% amylase. Adding to each of the 4 test tubes; 5mL of pH7 buffer, 2 mL of 1% starch

    are amylases? Amylases are enzymes that break down starch or glycogen. Amylases are produced by a variety of living organisms, ranging from bacteria to plants and humans. Bacteria and fungi secrete amylases to the outside of their cells to carry out extracellular digestion. When they have broken down the insoluble starch, the soluble end products such as (glucose or maltose) are absorbed into their cells. Amylases are classified based on how they break down starch molecules i. α-amylase (alpha-amylase)…

    3 SUBJECT: Biology TITLE: Enzymes AIM: To investigate the effect of substrate concentration on the enzyme amylase INTRODUCTION: Enzymes are perhaps one of the most important proteins of the human body. Enzymes such as amylase, an enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates, work by means of surface catalysis. In other words, the surface of the enzyme enables other molecules to react in a manner they would not be able to without the surface of the enzyme present. Enzymes achieve this by lowering the…

    Abstract: Enzymes are specific-type proteins that act as a catalyst by lowering the activation energy of a reaction. Each enzyme binds closely to the substrate; this greatly increases the reaction rate of the bounded substrate. Amylase enzyme, just like any other enzyme, has an optimum PH and temperature range in which it is most active, and in which the substrate binds most easily. The purpose of this experiment was to determine (1) the reaction rate of an amylase enzyme in starch and (2)…

    Enzymes are large globular proteins which act as biological catalysts. They increase the rate of reaction without being used up by themselves. They are found in and out of cells and lower the activation energy of a reaction. Amylase is the enzyme which catalyses starch hydrolysis. Alpha amylase and beta amylase are two types of amylase enzymes. The amylase which is the most commonly found in the human body is the alpha amylase. Beta amylase is mainly found in bacteria, fungi and plants. Amylase breakdown…

    iodine can be measured by using a spectrophotometer. α-amylases are found in saliva, pancreatic juice, human breast milk, serum and certain tissues such as the liver. This enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of α (1-4) linkages in starch by breaking it down to maltose and some glucose. As the starch is broken down, the coiled structure of α-amylase is unfolded. Therefore, iodine will no longer be able to form the blue complex with the α-amylase. It can be assumed that the decrease in color (absorbance)…

    designed to test the reaction of the enzyme amylase at various temperatures. There were two different kinds of amylase being tested, one was fungal amylase also known as aspergillus oryzae and human amylase. The changes in temperature effect the rate at which an enzyme and a substrate collide. When the temperature is too high the active site changes shape or denatures, once this occurs it stops substrates from attaching themselves to their corresponding enzyme. When the temperature is too low it decreases…
