STUDY GUIDE FOR TEST This test will cover information in chapter 6 (all), chapter 7 (7.1-7.2); scientific method notes, snail and elodea labs, gizmo on photosynthesis, quiz on enzymes. 1. What is an enzyme? An enzyme is a protein made up of amino acid chains. They are biological catalysts that are essential for life. Each enzyme is specific to a substrate and it’s reaction. They are reused 1000s of times per second. They will not work if their shape is damaged. They lower a reaction’s activation energy. 2. What are the different parts of an enzyme? There is an active site and an allosteric site. 3. What are the different binding sites on the enzyme and substrate called? The different binding sites on the enzyme are called the active site, where the substrates bind to. The substrate has a binding site that binds to the enzyme’s active site. As well, sometimes another signal molecule binds to the enzyme at the allosteric site. 4. How do you stop or slow down an enzymatic activity? To stop or slow down an enzymatic activity, the shape of the enzyme must be altered, making it unfit for the job it is doing and thereby stopping or slowing down their activity.
