Unformatted text preview: stop working unless they are denatured. They don’t run out of their power to achieve a certain function or goal. However if we were to boil the yeast solution, the bubbling response would not take place because the increased temperature would have denatured the yeast enzymes. In the final part of the experiment, we took the peroxide and yeast mixture and put it in a flask. We then added a stick that was just recently set on fire so it still was burning but not flaming. The stick caught back on fire for a brief period of time because of the oxygen that was given off by the reaction. This helped prove to us the development of oxygen gas when you add the hydrogen peroxide and yeast solution together....
