Effect of Different Concentrations of Enzyme on Enzyme Activity
What is the effect of changing the concentration of lipase enzyme on the enzyme activity in catalyzing lipids in whole milk?
Naim Al-Haj Ali
MYP Year 4B
To investigate the effect of changing the concentration of lipase enzyme (2%, 4%, 6%, 8%, 10%) on the rate of enzyme activity in catalyzing lipids in whole milk (5cm3), by measuring the pH of the solution before and after adding the enzyme, keeping all the other variables controlled like the temperature, pH, and substrate concentration.
• Enzymes are biological catalysts, proteins that help in speeding up chemical reactions without being consumed. Enzymes have an active site to which one molecule called substrate can bind to. The active site makes each enzyme specific to one substrate; as the shape of the active site must complement the substrate’s to catalyze it. Enzymes catalyze chemical reactions by lowering their activation energy needed to start the reaction.
• Lipase is an enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of lipids.
• Lipids are macromolecules, also called fats; they are made up of glycerol and fatty acids. Lipids can be found in dairy products, oil, and butter. Lipids can be used as long term energy storage and insulation; lipids are also a main part of the plasma membrane.
• Many factors can affect the rate of enzyme activity, like the enzyme concentration, substrate concentration, temperature, and pH.
If the enzyme lipase concentration increases, then the rate of enzyme activity would also increase; due to the fact that more enzyme molecules are present, thus more collisions with the substrate molecules happen in the same amount of time. Until a point (optimum point), where having a higher enzyme concentration would not increase the rate of enzyme activity, because the number of enzyme molecules become equal or more than the number of substrate molecules, thus having enzyme molecules with no substrate molecules to bind with. Also if the concentration of the enzyme decreases, then the rate of enzyme activity would also decrease.
The rate of enzyme activity increase when the concentration of enzyme increases due to the collision theory, where the more particles there is, the more effective collisions there is, thus increasing the rate of enzyme activity.
The concentration of lipase enzyme (2%, 4%, 6%, 8%, 10%).
I will measure the pH of the solution after 5 minutes of adding the enzyme to the milk, using a pH meter.
• Temperature: an increase in temperature would make the particles

The Theory Of EvolutionThe Theory of Evolution The theory of evolution, as set forth by Charles Darwin in 1859, stated that all plant and animal life evolved over long periods of time from simple to more complicated forms through mutation and adaptation. He also taught that only the fittest of each species would survive. He further postulated that the first living cell evolved in a warm warm little pond and that it took billions of years for the present diversity of living things to evolve. At the time, it was thoug
THe 1960sTHe 1960's Many social changes that were addressed in the 1960s are still the issues being confronted today. the '60s was a decade of social and political upheaval. in spite of all the turmoil, there were some positive results: the civil rights revolution, john f. Kennedy's bold vision of a new frontier, and the breathtaking advances in space, helped bring about progress and prosperity. however, much was negative: student and anti-war protest movements, political assassinations, and ghetto riots
The Will To Powerthe Will to Power In the Will to Power, Nietzsche claims: The will to power interprets (-it is a question of interpretation when an organ is constructed): it defines limits, determines degrees, variations of power. Mere variations of power could not feel themselves to be such: there must be present something that wants to grow and interprets the value of whatever else wants to grow. Equal in that- In fact, interpretation is itself a means of becoming master of something. (The organic process con
Kurt Vonnegut: A Canary In A Coal Mine Kurt Vonnegut: A Canary in a Coal Mine Kurt Vonnegut Served as a sensitive cell in the organism of American Society during the 1960's. His work alerted the public about the absurdity of modern warfare and an increasingly mechanized and impersonal society in which humans were essentially worthless and degenerated. The satirical tone and sardonic humor allowed people to read his works and laugh at their own misfortune. Vonnegut was born on November 11, 1922, in Indianapolis, where he was reared.
The Veterinary ProfessionThe Veterinary Profession When the first man set foot on this earth he longed for companionship. He wanted some one to keep him company, help him hunt and most of all, be a friend. Since that first step, when man domesticated animals, pets have been a growing part of many people?s lives. It is estimated that over seventy-eight percent of Americans have some type of pet, ranging from a common dog to an exotic snake, sharing their home with them (Barns 1). Just like humans, animals get sick and ne

I researched for weeks and weeks to get all of the information I could on pay differences, percentages of working women and what jobs they were doing. In 1988, my paper focused on sexual discrimination and the wage difference. For example, in 1998, ?women received 63% of the pay men received for the same job.?

The Ecology Of A Rain ForestThe Ecology of a Rain Forest In 1980, the estimated amount of rain forests in the world was 40,000 square miles. This number decreases each year by roughly 1,000 square miles due to construction and the resources being used for profit. It is too bad, because the rain forest is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It is the most diverse, containing the most species of living things, much more than anywhere else, and most have yet to be identified. All rain forests are located on earth's gr

Since we are interested in the function of molecules. it helps to study their structure. One of the major classes of organic compounds found in cells are carbohydrates. These carbohydrate are made of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen in a ratio of 1:2:1 respectively with a general formula of X(CH2O)n. When the ca

Pavlov vs. Skinner4/17/15 Pavlov vs. Skinner Ivan Pavlov, born September 26, 1849, was a Russian physiologist. Pavlov is primarily known for his works in classical conditioning. Pavlov was actually preparing to become a priest but he left the seminary and studied chemistry and physiology instead. One of Pavlov's interest had to do with the digestive system, more specifically the interaction between salivation and the action of the stomach. He conducted an experiment with dogs where he noticed that the dog would b

UnitsDimentions Measures and calabrationUnits,Dimentions, Measures and calabration. CHEMTUTOR Measurement is the most useful form of description in science. Often the most useful measurements are those that have a number and a unit, such as ‘12.7 inches.' Here '12.7' is the number and 'inches' is the unit. This unit of inches in the example is one of the common units in the dimension of length. A number, then, is an expression in numerals. A unit is a recognized way to divide the essence of a dimension for measurement, and a dimension
Applications of Titration Applications of Titration November 27, 2015 December 2, 2015 S. Raphael Introduction: The laboratory method used in this experiment is titration. Titration can be traced back to the start of volumetric analysis, in the late eighteenth century. The study of analytical chemistry began in France (Bandos, 2015). The first burette was made by Francois Antoine Henri Descroizilles, a French chemist and pharmacist (Rosenfeld, 1999). The field began to spread to other European countries. The first text
