    The Effect of pH on Function of Catecholase Enzyme in Potato Abstract In biochemical reactions, enzymes activity could be changed based on these factors: concentration of substrates, salt concentration, allosteric regulators, temperature and pH. Inventing the hypothesis is increasing concentration of pH would increase the activity of enzyme Catecholase and the rate of reaction. Therefore, the purpose of this experiment was to test the effect of pH on Catecholase (one kind of enzymes in potato) activity by using pH12 buffer. By using the Spectronic 20D+ Spectrophotometer, the change

    Twins So Alike And So Different

    What is it that has fascinated generations since the beginning of time about twins? Why are they so special? In reality, twins are just like any other human being, yet they are somehow treated differently than the rest of the world. Many sets of twins are used for research; scientists want to know about brain patterns between the twins. They want to know why people prefer their right hand over their left, and vice-versa. In many ways, it seems like twins could answer many questions about life in general, but sometimes twins muddle these mysteries more than they resolve them (Fierro 1). When i

    Introduction: Enzymes are necessary for a human to live a comfortable life every day. They give us the energy to move all of our muscles. An enzyme can be any of various proteins originating from living cells and that are capable of producing certain chemical changes in organic substances by catalytic action ( Catalysts are a substance which lowers the amount of energy necessary for a chemical reaction to proceed and speeds up a metabolic reaction (Book). During activation energy the minimum amount for energy is being used to change a stable molecule into an active molec

    An Investigation Of The Effect Of Catechol Oxidase

    1283 words - 6 pages

    Abstract This experiment tested the effect of enzyme concentration on reaction rate. It is evident that variables that change around an enzyme will change the enzymes ability to function at its optimal level. Changing enzyme concentration will either increase the reaction or rate or decrease it. This depends on how much substrate there is available. If there is more enzyme then substrate then when the substrate is finished the enzyme has nothing to catalyze and so the reaction rate slows down. In this experiment catechol oxidase from potato was used as the enzyme and catechol as the substra

    Is Breast Best Or Is Formula Milk Just As Good? Introduction The subject of breast feeding may not, at first, appear to be a controversial subject that is up for debate.

In 2005 the government announced plans to strengthen breast feeding promotion and protection.

    SIDS Causes The cause (or causes) of SIDS is still unknown. Despite the dramatic decrease in the incidence of SIDS in the United States in recent years, SIDS remains one of the leading causes of death during infancy beyond the first 30 days after birth. It is generally accepted that SIDS may be a reflection of multiple interacting factors. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, also known as SIDS, is the major “cause of death” among infants ranging from the ages of one month to one year, most occurring between two and four months old.

    Science And Birth

    For as long as humans have inhabited the Earth, childbirth has been the most natural human process known to humanity. From conception to exaction, nature has remained isolated from technology and science. Women would hold a child in them for nine months, and when it was time, a midwife (another woman) would aid the mother in the childbirth process. Women, however, “feared childbirth because of the possibilities of death or debility.” By the 1760s, this fear had led to the rise of a new field: obstetrics. One of the most notable obstetrical technologies, the forceps, is an artifact that wi
