Essay content:

Extreme variations in pH and temperature denature the enzyme by altering its chemical structure, thus adversely affecting the chemical reaction. As even the slightest change in the protein's structure will change the enzyme's shape enough to prevent the formation of the enzyme-substrate complex, the reaction will then be unable to take place...

The enzyme, catalase, reacts with hydrogen peroxide in order to yield water and oxygen. Therefore, upon reaction, bubbling will occur as oxygen is produced. The amount of bubbling, or oxygen that is produced is dependent on the conditions under which the reaction takes place (or fails to). Purpose The Purpose of this experiment was to determine the optimal temperature and pH levels under which enzymatic reactions involving the enzyme catalase and the reactant, hydrogen peroxide, may successfully occur...
