Yet it is found in rain; fresh fruit and vegetables; and in colostrum. In the body's immune defense, hydrogen peroxide is released to destroy invading bacteria, viruses and fungi. It benefits us however, hydrogen peroxide is harmful in great amounts and must be removed as soon efficiently. Cells make the enzyme catalase to remove hydrogen perox...

Effect of Enzyme Practical

This student studied:
SACE - Year 12 - Biology

A+ PRACTICAL ABSTRACT: An investigation was commenced in order to observe the effect a change of temperature will have on the activity of the enzyme catalase, present in capsicum extract. Enzymes are biological catalysts which speed up the rate of reaction in all living organisms, and have specific conditions which will determine how productive they are. Samples of capsicum extract were exposed to hydrogen peroxide at different temperatures, and the amount of catalase activity was compared by measuring the amount of oxygen gas produced in each case using the volume of the foam as an indicator. It was hypothesised that the enzyme catalase will have an optimum temperature of around 35°C, with function decreasing either side of this. From the results, it was concluded that the hypothesis was not supported, and the enzyme catalase was working more optimally at a lower temperature compared to a higher temperature.

Differentiating Temperatures on Enzyme Activities

This student studied:
HSC - Year 12 - Biology

HYPOTHESIS: ​It can be inferred that the enzyme “catalase” will have an optimal level of temperature of 37 degrees in which enzyme reaction and activity will occur. From the three temperatures being tested 40 degrees is the most suitable temperature for a reaction, whereas 10 degrees will produce a slower reaction and 60 degrees will denature the enzyme.
