What is an enzyme Biological catalyst
From what biomolecule is an enzyme made from protein
What shape is an enzyme 3d globular folded shape
What is meant by saying that an enzyme is specific Only one particular enzyme will only work on one particular substrate
What is an immobilised enzyme Attached to each other or to an inert material
Give two physical methods of immobilised enzymes Trapped in a gel e.g. sodium alginate//adsorbed onto an inert material
Give two chemical methods of immobilising enzymes Bonded to each other//bonded to an inert material
Advantages of immobilised enzymes Recovered and reused//cheaper//more stable
Name the enzyme used in investigation Catalase
State the source of the enzyme Celery
State the substrate of the enzyme Hydrogen peroxide
State the products formed Water and oxygen
If varying temperature, how is the pH kept constant Using the same pH buffer
If varying temperature, how is the temperature varied Using a waterbath and a thermometer at different temperatures
If varying pH , how is the pH varied using different pH buffers
