Factors Affecting Enzyme Activity Background Amylase is an enzyme that is used to break down complex carbohydrates, such as starch, into simpler carbohydrates, such as maltose. Amylase can be found in saliva and is produced by the pancreas and secreted into the small intestine. Like most other enzymes, amylase has an optimal temperature and pH. Any variance in the temperature or pH will cause amylase to denature. Purpose The purpose of this experiment is to determine how a change in temperature and pH affects the efficacy of amylase in breaking down starch into simpler carbohydrates. Hypothesis Before viewing the experiment, indicate how you think a change in temperature and pH will affect the activity of amylase; Materials Create a list of materials that were used in the experiment.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
