The Effect of Temperature on Enzymes
In general the rate of a chemical reaction increases with rising temperature. This also holds true when the reaction is catalysed by an enzyme - up to a point. The fact that enzymes are complicated proteins and tend to becoame unstable under certain conditions, complicates the matter.
This kit investigates these phenomena using the enzymes Amylase and Invertase.
• Heat denaturation of Invertase
• Heat denaturation of Amylase
• Effect of incubation temperature on the activity of Amylase
Suitable for advanced or tertiary level students.
Kit contains enough equipment for 10 single students or 10 small groups.
