(4) How many types of enzyme are there? List them and give at least 1 example. Enzymes are classified based on the reactions they catalyze into 6 groups: Oxidoreductases, transferases, hydrolases, lyases, isomearses, ligases. Isomerases enzymes: DNA topoisomerase Hydrolases enzymes: Proteases. Transferases enzymes: Transaminases Oxidoreductases enzymes: Catalases.

International University, Vietnam National University - HCMC GENERAL BIOLOGY LABORATORY Ligases enzymes: DNA ligases. (5) Define the term “optimal temperature” of an enzyme. Enzymes are made from proteins, which are long strings of amino acids that hold together in a specific structure based on the order they're joined, and also the temperature. If the temperature changes from where it was designed to work, the structure of the enzyme can change and this will prevent it from working or decrease its ability to function. (6) What makes biological catalysts specific? Define the “active site” of the enzyme and the “substrate” -Biological catalysts specific because of the specific of enzymes. - T he active site is the region of an enzyme where substrate molecules bind and undergo a chemical reaction . The active site consists of residues that form temporary bonds with the substrate ( binding site ) and residues that catalyse a reaction of that substrate (catalytic site). - A substrate is typically the chemical species being observed in a chemical reaction, which is organic in nature and reacts with a reagent to generate a product.

    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.
