Following the progress of an enzyme-controlled reaction.
Aim: To follow the progress of an enzyme-controlled reaction using starch solution and amylase.
Hypothesis: It may be assumed that the longer the starch will be in contact with the enzyme the more starch will be converted into maltose. It can also be expected that the more substrate is digested into the break down product the lower color readings will be obtained with the colorimeter confirming the hypothesis that as time goes by the amylase breaks down more starch. It is highly probable that the rate of reaction will be very high at first due to the great abundance of starch and gradually slower as the substrate reduces in quantity and the product increases.
Concerning the starch depletion/enzyme activity rate it is likely to slow down towards the end as the amylase is running out of starch to break down.
Regarding the final Benedicts’ test on the remainder of the solution, it can be confidently stated that it will reveal to be positive due to its high concentration of maltose.
Variables:Aspects modified purposelyAspects maintained the same purposelyUncontrolled aspects
o The amount of time the starch was left to interact with the amylase. · The amount of iodine in each test tube.
o The amount of starch/amylase solution in each test tube
o The ratio of starch solution mixed with amylase (1:2) · Amount of distilled water used to dilute each test tube.
o Each colorimeter sample holder might have varied slightly in transparency although they were not apparent at first sight.
o The exact size of the drops of iodine, amylase/starch solution placed in the sample holders
· 11 test tubes
· Starch solution
· 10 colorimeter sample holders
· Benedict’s solution
· Bunsen burner
· Test tube holder
Step 1 Place one drop of iodine in 10 colorimeter sample holders
Step 2 Mix amylase and starch solution to a ratio of 1:2 and place two drops of the mixture in the first sample holder at once.
Step 3 Wait a minute before placing to drops into the next sample holder
Step 4 While waiting fill the first sample holder with distilled water to the brim.
Step 5 Repeat steps 3-4 for the remnant sample holders.
Step 6 Measure the color absorption with the colorimeter.
Step 7 Graph the results.
Step 8 With the remaining amylase/starch solution ad benedict’s solution and boil under flame.
Step 9 Note changes of color.
Results and Observations:
When Benedicts’ solution was added to the remaining amylase/starch and boiled an unmistakable change of color occurred. The presence of sugar – in this case maltose – can be confirmed with this test. The solution became a bright orange/yellow.

The standard curve numbers were obtained by Mr. Moore
Reaction Rate (Rate of Starch Depletion) (Assumed enzyme Activity Rate) - results found thanks to the standard curve + absorption results.
Conclusion: The most fulfilling results were the absorption readings for iodine. The reasons behind this were that first of all there were more results gathered by all four groups and the numbers were rather advancing in a logical progression. Thanks to the absorption readings for iodine we were able to determine that the longer the amylase is left in contact with the starch the more maltose is produced. This can be calculated by observing the progressive drop of absorption figures in every group. There seemed to be an anomaly in the results of group one (clearly seen in the second graph). The reason for these results is obscure but the figures descend nonetheless suggesting hat the irregularity still demonstrates a progressive decrease of substrate and increase of product.
The transmission results were less satisfying. First of all only two groups made this type of readings and the graph formed was unproductive (at least compared to the absorption readings). But although the data is quite set apart when in comparison with

Detection of Biological MoleculesDetection of Biological Molecules Introduction: Without carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, sulfur, oxygen and phosphorus, life wouldn\'t exist. These are the most abundant elements in living organisms. These elements are held together by covalent bonds, ionic bonds, hydrogen bonds, and disulfide bonds. Covalent bonds are especially strong, thus, are present in monomers, the building blocks of life. These monomers combine to make polymers, which is a long chain of monomers strung together.

Diverrsity of PlantsDiverrsity of Plants Plants evolved more than 430 million years ago from multicellular green algae. By 300 million years ago, trees had evolved and formed forests, within which the diversification of vertebrates, insects, and fungi occurred. Roughly 266,000 species of plants are now living. The two major groups of plants are the bryophytes and the vascular plants; the latter group consists of nine divisions that have living members. Bryophytes and ferns require free water so that sperm can swim
CarbonCarbon Without the element of carbon, life as we know it would not exist. Carbon provides the framework for all tissues of plants and animals. They are built of elements grouped around chains or rings made of carbon atoms. Carbon also provides common fuels--coal, oil, gasoline, and natural gas. Sugar, starch, and paper are compounds of carbon with hydrogen and oxygen. Proteins such as hair, meat, and silk contain these and other elements such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur.

Introduction: An enzyme is much like a catalyst in that they both accelerate chemical reactions in cells. Two important factors that influence enzyme activity are temperature and levels of acidity, which can denature the enzyme, breaking the ‘lock and key\' formation, causing the enzymes to not fit the substrates anymore (Raven, 1988). We have chosen t
Biochemistry of FoodsBiochemistry of Foods BACKROUND INFORMATION Starch is stored by the plants after photosynthesis takes place. Glucose is made through photosynthesis, photosynthesis makes the glucose, the glucose is transferred into the grass that the cows eat, and the cows make the milk that we eat or drink in dairy products. On the other hand, if the food, such as a vegetable, was growing in the ground, it could contain glucose. Protein is also made through the photosynthesis process. Once again, the glucose is
Digestive SystemsDigestive Systems The digestive systems works on nutrients taken from the environment, breaking them down into simpler products, and then absorbing the products together with water and salts so they can be used in metabolism. The individuals of all species contain many different protiens or carbohydrates in the cell walls of bacteria, chitin in the external skeletons of arthropods, and so on and foreign proteins or carbohydrates are rarely incorporated unchanged. They are usually first broken do

PlantsPlants INTRODUCTION: Photosynthesis is the process by which chlorophyll-containing organisms-green plants, algae, and some bacteria capture energy in the form of light and convert into chemical energy (Microsoft Encarta, 1995). The chlorophyll found in plants is essential to the process of photosynthesis, as it absorbs light energy. Once it captures light energy in the violet and red portions of the spectrum, it transforms it into chemical energy through a series of reactions (Microsoft Encarta,
The Digestive SystemThe Digestive System Digestion is a process in which your body converts your food into simpler forms which can be used to supply energy and building materials for growth. Food enters your body through your mouth. Your tongue moves the food around while your teeth chew it up. The tongue also aids in the process of swallowing the food. The salivary glands add saliva to the mouth. The saliva contains an enzyme call Salivary Amylase which changes the starches in the food to sugars. These sugars give
