TOPIC 2.5: Enzymes
Essential Idea: Enzymes control the metabolism of the cell.
At SHS, Topic 2.5 is taught in the following class unit(s):
Statements & Objectives:
2.5.U1 Enzymes have an active site to which specific substrates bind.
2.5.U2 Enzyme catalysis involves molecular motion and the collision of substrates with the active site.
2.5.U3 Temperature, pH and substrate concentration affect the rate of activity of enzymes.
2.5.U4 Enzymes are denatured.
2.5.U5 Immobilized enzymes are widely used in industry.
2.5.A1 Methods of production of lactose-free milk and its advantages.
2.5.S1 Design of experiments to test the effect of temperature, pH, and substrate concentration on the activity of enzymes.
2.5.S2 Experimental investigation of a factor affecting enzyme activity. (Practical 3)
2.5.NOS Experimental design-accurate, quantitative measurements in enzyme experiments require replicates to ensure reliability.
