Post-lab Quiz Results You scored 25% by answering 1 out of 4 questions correctly. 1. The substrate(s) for amylase is/are Your answer: b. cellulose. Correct answer: a. starch. 2. The results of tube 5 demonstrated that You correctly answered: b. peptidase does not digest starch. 3. Why was the cellulose in tube 6 hydrolyzed to glucose? Your answer: b. The bacterial suspension contained reducing sugars. Correct answer: d. The bacterial suspension contained the enzyme cellulase, which digested the cellulose. 4. Can you detect the presence of contaminating amylase from your experiments? Your answer: d. There was no contaminating amylase because tube 4 was positive. Correct answer: c.

    Enzymes are biological catalysts. They speed up chemical reactions in all living things, and allow them to occur more effortlessly, without them we would not be alive. “Catalyst” denotes a substance that has the ability to increase the rate of a chemical reaction, and is not changed or destroyed by the chemical reaction that it accelerates (MicroTak, 2002). The enzyme Amylase speeds up the breakdown of starch into simple sugar; this reaction happens in the mouth and is the start of chemical digestion. Starch cannot pass through the lining of the intestine; it is too big (REFER TO FIGURE-31). The enzyme in question here is called Amylase; it catalyzes the hydrolysis of the polysaccharide starch (amylose) to the disaccharide maltose (Miller, 1992 ).…

    The purpose of this lab was to check the time needed for salivary amylase and phosphorylase to produce a negative result and how different concentrations affected those times. Enzymes are biological catalysts that can cause a specific chemical change in any part of the body (Walsh, 2002). Many of the reactions that take place within a cell would normally take place at temperatures substantially higher than those present inside a cell (Alberts et al., 2010). Because of this, these chemical reactions require the assistance of enzymes to catalyze the reaction and allow it reaction to occur quickly (Alberts et al., 2010). The substrate binds with the active site on the enzyme to form a substrate enzyme complex (Di Giuseppe, 2002). The substrate is then transformed into one or more products, which are released from the active site and the enzyme remains unaltered (Di Giuseppe, 2002).…

    Digestion Lab

    In these labs, my partner and I had to understand, and make note of, the types of reactions that occurred in each test tube. These reactions would be brought on by enzymes that would interact with other substances. [Part A] In this lab, we hypothesized that the tubes that contained a pancreatic solution would dissolve the starch, while the other test tubes wouldn’t. This is because the pancreatic solution contains enzymes which complete the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids (Digestion BioKit). Although test tube three contained this solution, we predicted that there wouldn’t be a reaction due to the fact that it was being boiled. The number, type, and arrangement of the amino acids determine the shape of the protein which directly controls the protein's function. The shape and function of a protein can be altered by a process known as denaturing. Too high a temperature or change of pH can cause the denaturing to take place. If this happens, then the protein can be rendered useless, unable to perform its normal job. In this…
