Å¸ Time enzymes are exposed to temperatures, enzyme denaturing is time dependant so enzymes that are exposed to high temperatures for a short period of time will be less denatured than those exposed for a long time. This wall of macrophages surrounding a pathogen is called a. Evaluation The results that I have obtained I think are fairly reliable despite some problems. This contracting and relaxing motion is called peristalsis. C will have the smallest reaction height, followed by the liver in 0? Catalase prevents damage by accelerating the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide into oxygen and water.
Hydrogen peroxide is used as a potent antimicrobial agent when cells are infected with a pathogen. Prepare an ice bath by placing ice into a container, and place a thermometer into the ice bath. This effervescence is what is used to measure the reaction rate of the catalase. The reaction rate of the Catalyse increases in a fairly straight line between 10 degrees and 35 degrees were an optimum temperature is reached. The opposite end is then dipped into hydrogen peroxide, which is drawn into the tube through , and turned upside down, so that the bacterial points downwards. But this is only for the majority of proteins as many have a much higher or lower optimum temperature.
You can replace these two temperatures with that of the fridge and room 3. Catalase is most effective at an optimum temperature, with less-than-optimal catalysis taking place at hotter or colder temperatures. The reaction produces bubbles of oxygen gas, which look like foam. If you have prepared a water bath at 21? Wait until the temperature has reached 37? C the experiment should not proceed as the energy needed for enzyme action is unavailable. Keep all of the pieces of liver in their specified temperatures for five minutes. Get the stop watch ready. The same enzyme can also have different optimum temperatures depending on it's source.
I was having to rely on the fact that by using the same volume of potato each time that I was also keeping the concentration and volume of potato catalyse the same. For each experiment, take down the results after every 30 seconds. A small sample of bacteria is collected on the end of the capillary tube, without blocking the tube, to avoid results. The prediction in the hypothesis is based on the concept of denaturation. This is because the collision rate is at its maximum without the denaturing effect coming into play. For example, extremophiles are organisms that live in extreme conditions hence the name ranging from about 0 degrees Fahrenheit to upwards of about 180 degrees F. Remove both of the test tubes labelled 1 from the test tube rack, place them in the ice bath, and wait for 5 minutes.
It is able to speed up the decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide because of the shape of the Hydrogen Peroxide molecule. Size of test tube Different sized test tubes will hold different volumes of O2 and will give incorrect measurements with the ruler Keep all the test tubes the same size — with volume of 30cm3 Uncontrolled Variables The variables that will be difficult to control include air pressure in the lab and the volume of the liver. This range in standard deviation is due to errors that may have occurred throughout the lab. This lab will be using beef liver, which contains the specific enzyme catalase, and by placing the liver into different temperatures it will be assessed how catalase performs under certain conditions. Other sharp implements such as the scalpel used for cutting the potato can be dangerous if the sharp side comes into contact with the skin as it could cut it.
Significance The five limitations stated above were mainly temperature errors and measuring errors. The rate of reaction at the different temperatures will also be calculated. As the temperature increases, more molecules have enough kinetic energy to undergo the reaction. Introduction This is a real A-level school project and as such is intended for educational or research purposes only. Such synergisms have been observed in vitro and may be significant in vivo. Thats incorrect, the optimal temperature is betwee … n 10 and 20 degrees centigrade.
Although this lab is using beef liver instead of a human liver, the optimum temperature for beef liver should be similar to that of humans. C will have the largest reaction height. Prepare two more water baths like this at 7? With forceps, place a piece of liver into each of the test tubes. By viewing the average height of the reaction, these results are supported. The positive effect of speeding up the reaction is now more than offset by the negative effect of denaturing more and more enzyme molecules.
My hypothesis was: If liver is placed in different temperatures of 0? Practical Safety and Risk Assessment All care will be taken when dealing with hot plate and hot water to prevent burning and scalding. Its doubling rate at that temperature is lower on average t … hen the rate at 37 C. Thus the temperature that produces optimum activity of the Catalase is the temperature just before the enzyme begins to denature.

For example, the pancreas secretes the enzyme lipase, which travels to the small intestine, where it breaks down fats.
