Unformatted text preview: 4. What function do enzymes serve in living organisms? 5. Since enzymes function better under different conditions, where in the human body would you expect to find enzymes that work well in a low pH environment? 6. Within our bodies, would you expect the catalase that our body produces to function better in the summer or winter? Explain. 7. There is an enzyme called amylase that helps us digest starches. This enzyme’s optimal temperature is between 35-40 degrees Celcius. Predict what would happen to the rate of amylase activity at 20 degrees Celcius. 8. Do enzyme catalyzed reactions continue indefinitely? Why or why not? 9. There are many enzymes classified as proteases. What is a protease? What would happen if you added a protease to the catalase prior to conducting part D?...
