  • Fungal Amylase

    The Effect of Temperature on Animal and Fungal Amylase’s Ability to Breakdown Starch. Abstract This experiment was 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

    Abstract This lab was focused on determining the optimal temperature of the enzyme amylase responsible for catabolizing starch polymers and to see how different temperatures affected the rate as well as how effectively the enzyme worked. To proceed with the experiment the group set up four different test tubes for each‚ bacteria and fungal amylase‚ and labeled them accordingly with different temperatures as well as different solutions . Then the spot plates were placed on the time and temperature

    1 The Limits of Amylase 2-1-14 Abstract This report explains the purpose of this experiment in a way that conveys information to the reader about Amylase’s ability to withstand acidic or basic pH. To do this‚ two test tubes were both filled with 5mL of a 5% amylase solution. The first one was filled with an acid‚ while the other was filled with a base. After dropping liquid Iodine and Benedict’s solution into each one‚ the tube with a basic pH tested positive for glucose. The acidic solution

  • Enzyme Amylase

    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

  • Salivary Amylase

    Suzuki‚ Laurent Santos‚ Val Justin D.M. Tongco* College of Science‚ University of Santo Tomas‚ Manila Philippines Abstract Salivary amylase‚ found in humans‚ is enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of starch into simpler compounds. Its enzymatic activity is affected by several factors‚ such as temperature and pH. The rates of enzymatic activity of salivary amylase in different temperatures and pH were measured and resulted to be very near 50 C and 7 respectively. However‚ due to some errors that

  • Amylase Lab Report

    Introduction In the amylase lab‚ it was being tested if amylase‚ an enzyme found in saliva‚ would be denatured by being put in an acid or high temperatures. This lab is about denaturing amylase. It is tested by exposing it to pH and temperature changes. It is then mixed with Benedict’s solution‚ is a solution that changes color from blue to reddish brown when maltose is present. Amylase breaks starch into maltose‚ so is the amylase isn’t denatured‚ it should change colors. Amylase is an enzyme.

    Effects Environmental Temperature and pH have on the Activity of Porcine Pancreatic Amylase Introduction There are many types of enzymes and each has a specific job. Enzymes are particular types of proteins that help to speed up some reactions‚ such as reactants going to products. One of them is the amylase enzyme. Amylases are found in saliva‚ and pancreatic secretions of the small intestine. The function of amylase is to break down big molecules of starch into small molecules like glucose; this

  • Diffusion and the Effect of Amylase

    Lab Report DIFFUSION AND THE EFFECT OF AMYLASE. Aim: We will interpret and explain the activity of an enzyme added to a solution. We will analyze reactions in different pH ranges. The starch solution will appear blue when mixed with iodine. But after mixing the enzyme amylase to the starch‚ the starches are broken down into simple sugars. Now‚ when the iodine is added‚ no color change exist. Instruments and materials used: 1.) Dialysis bags x2 2.)

  • Amylase Activity on Starch

    The Effect and Rate of the Enzyme Amylase on Starch Abstract Assessing reaction speed of the enzyme amylase can be measured by the amount of glucose and maltose produced during given time intervals. I hypothesized that‚ if the reaction time is longer‚ then the amount of amylase will be larger. Enzymes are specific in their match of substrates they will breakdown – similar to a key and its lock. Since amylase is the only enzyme that breaks down starch‚ the procedure was effective and gave clear

  • Starch Digestion by Pancreatic Amylase

    Pancreatic Amylase Statement of the Problem: What happens to enzymes when they are boiled? If digestion doesn’t occur‚ which will be present starch or maltose? If digestion does occur‚ which will be present starch or maltose? Hypothesis: I predict that when enzymes are boiled‚ they will become larger. If digestion does not occur starch will be present‚ and if it does occur maltose will be present. Materials: Test Tube Boiling Water Starch Suspension Pancreatic Amylase Solution
