Enzyme Action: Testing Catalase Activity
- Different organisms often live in very different habitats.
Design a series of experiments to investigate how different types
of organisms might affect the rate of enzyme activity. Consider
testing a plant, an animal, and a protist.
- Presumably, at higher concentrations of H2O2, there is a greater
chance that an enzyme molecule might collide with H2O2. If so,
the concentration of H2O2 might alter the rate of oxygen production.
Design a series of experiments to investigate how differing concentrations
of the substrate hydrogen peroxide might affect the rate of enzyme
