WORKSHEET
 
 1.

What
is
an
enzyme?

What
is
its
role,
and
how
does
it
perform
this
role?
 
 
 
 
 
 2.

What
was
the
name
of
the
enzyme
that
we
used,
and
what
was
the
name
of
its
 particular
substrate?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 3.

When
the
substrate
was
metabolized,
what
products
were
formed?

Which
of
 these
products
could
immediately
be
used
to
create
energy?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 4.

Based
off
of
your
results,
if
I
were
to
ask
you
to
create
a
scenario
that
used
the
 enzyme
from
lab
to
create
a
large
quantity
of
products,
please
describe
the
 conditions
in
which
you
would
set
up
your
experiment.

Why
would
you
select
these
 particular
conditions?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 5.

Using
the
graph
below,
please
identify
the
temperature
where
the
enzymatic
 activity
is
the
highest.

Please
justify
your
 answer. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 6.

Looking
at
the
graph
in
number
5,
you
will
notice
that
the
amount
of
product
 produced
at
0
C
and
at
100
C
are
the
same.


Please
elaborate
as
to
the
reason
or
 reasons
that
we
did
not
observe
enzymatic
activity
in
each
of
these
scenarios.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 7.

In
one
of
the
experiments,
you
added
a
substrate
that
looked
similar
to
the
 original
substrate.

What
was
this
substrate
analog,
and
what
was
the
purpose
of
the
 experiment
in
which
it
was
used?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 8.

EDTA
was
used
in
the
final
experiment
of
the
lab.

Given
the
results
below
,
please
 interpret
this
data,
and
describe
what
it
means
in
terms
of
enzymatic
activity.
 
 Control
(mg/ml
of
 product)
 1000
 
 EDTA
(mg/ml
of
 product)
 250
