A quantitative experiment that can be conducted is
the influence of temperature on the action of an enzyme. Catalase, an enzyme present in cells, causes hydrogen peroxide, a toxic substrate to break down into water and oxygen. Therefore, if small pieces of liver which naturally contain the enzyme catalase, were placed in three different test tubes; one containing room temperature water, one with ice water and one with boiling water, and the same amount of hydrogen peroxide was added to each test-tube, one could measure the amount of bubbling in each test tube and the length of time.
Question: what is the negative control?
The negative control for the catalase reaction experiment, is that the control test... View the full answer
