1.Introduction:

An enzyme is a large protein that acts as a biological catalyst which changes the rate of a reaction. It provides an active site which is an environment where a reaction can take place this is made up of amino acids. The structure and shape of the substrate, the structure and shape of an enzyme and the substance upon which the enzyme works all have to match exactly. This enables the substrate to bind, but it can 't do this if the shapes of the two are different. The Aim of Enzyme Catalase Experiment is making a series of experiments involving the enzyme Catalase which has been performed in order to determine some of the enzyme 's properties. The enzyme found in different conditions which its specific reaction rate. Variation in enzyme concentration, variation in pH, variation in temperature, and the effect of different concentrations of inhibitors were all tested. The enzyme concentration increased the reaction rate. An optimum pH and temperature were found for the enzyme, outside of this optimum the reaction rate would be lower. The correct name is the catalase enzyme.
The EC number is: EC 1.11.1.6 .
The biological function of the enzyme is catalyzing the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide to water and oxygen. It is a very important enzyme in protecting the cell from oxidative damage by reactive oxygen species (ROS). Likewise, catalase has one of the highest turnover numbers of all enzymes ,one catalase molecule can convert approximately 5 million
