(11)Before you arrive for the Enzymes: Factors Affecting the Rate of activity lab, please 1. Read the lab thoroughly, noting all safety guidelines. 2. Answer these preparatory questions: Is an enzyme a carbohydrate, protein, or a lipid? Protein What are the monomers (building blocks) of an enzyme? Amino   acids Which suffix usually ends an enzyme's name? -ace What is an enzyme’s active site, and where is it located? The enzyme’s active site is the region on the surface of the enzyme that houses   catalytic residues, binds the substrate, and carries out the reactions. What is the name of the “energy hill” that reactants must overcome to become products? The energy hill is the activation energy. What do enzymes do to that “energy hill”? They lower the activation energy to increase the rate of reaction. Would a reaction that is normally enzyme-driven ever occur if its enzyme was removed? If so, how would it be different than if enzyme was present?

    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.
