The sample was transferred to a 250 ml conical flask kept in water bath for alkali treatment. 75 ml of 17.5% caustic soda was measured using a measuring cylinder at 20°C. 15 ml of 17.5% NaOH was added and fibres were macerated gently with a flattened glass rod for 1 minute. 10 ml more NaOH was added and the solution was mixed for 45 seconds. 10 ml NaOH was again added and mixed for 15 seconds to make lump free slurry.
Measurement of lipid peroxidation TBARS, a measure of lipid per oxidation, was measured as described by Ohkawa . Briefly, 1 ml of suspension medium was taken from the 10% tissue homogenate. 0.5 ml of 30% Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) was added to it, followed by 0.5 ml of 0.8% thiobarbituric acid (TBA) reagent. The tubes were covered with aluminium foil and kept in shaking water bath for 30 minutes at 80°C. After 30 minutes, tubes were taken out and kept in ice-cold water for 30 minutes.
Aim The aim of the experiments to be carried out is to determine the kinetic parameters, Km and Vmax, of Alkaline Phosphatase. Theory, Principles and Application of Principles Enzymes are a huge varying group of proteins which are needed to carry out essential metabolic functions in cells. Substrate-specific enzymes, like Alkaline Phosphatase, act as catalysts lowering the needed activation energy to convert the substrate to product. Enzymes are made up of amino-acids and amino-groups have side chains referred to as R-groups. These R-groups have different degrees of protonation at different pH levels – meaning they can carry different charges at different pH levels, these charges together make up the overall charge of the enzyme.
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.
Enzyme assays are performed to serve two different purposes: (i) To identify a special enzyme by proving its presence or absence in a distinct specimen. (ii) To determine the amount of the enzyme in the sample by monitoring the disappearance of substrate or appearance of product. Enzymes speed up reaction rate by decreasing the activation energy required to start the reaction. Activation energy is the energy required to break certain bonds in the substrate so that other bonds can form. The formation of these new bonds results in the formation of the product by measuring the changes in absorbance due to the substrate (starch) being changed into product by the amylase enzyme.
The 2.5 mL of Albumin Standard (200µg/mL) was distributed among test tubes 0 through 5 (0.00, 0.25, 0.50, 0.75, 1.00, and 0.00 mL respectively). Then, 1.00, 0.75, 0.50, 0.25, 0.00, and 0.00 mL of water was added to test tubes 0 through 5 respectively. One mL of the unknown was added only to test tube #5. Four mL of the biuret reagent was added to each test tube and allowed to stand for 30 minutes at room temperature. Then, the absorbance was determined for each test tube at 545 nm after tube 0 was used to tare the colorimeter to zero absorbance.
Catalase and Temperature Introduction Background: Enzymes are catalysts which help reactions inside of organisms such as cells. Many different types of enzymes are used to catalyze different types of reactions. Enzymes are able to catalyze reactions that normally wouldn’t be possible under the specific circumstances in the cell such as the pressure or temperature of the cell. The way an enzyme works is it binds with the active site of a substrate and creates an enzyme substrate complex. The enzyme then breaks apart the bonds in a substrate and then leaves unchanged after the reaction.
Features built-in battery that lasts one year without replacing. The thermometer shows temperature in three ways: displays cold in low temperature, shows hot with red LED flashing lights when the temperature is too high and shows digit in Fahrenheit when water temperature is okay.

During this step, I observed that there were bubbles in the solution, especially at the bottom of the beaker. After adding the HLC, there solution had a slight yellow tint. Next, I mixed 0.529g of sodium acetate in 3mL of water and added 0.679g of acetic anhydride to the aniline solution and immediately added sodium acetate. The solution was cooled in an ice bath for fifteen minutes. During this time, I noticed the formation
1. 150 ml of boiled water was poured into each of the three beakers labeled A, B, C. 2. Five tea bags were soaked for the time given by the manufacturer (two minutes) , in beaker A (Control). The teabags were immediately removed after the time elapsed. 3.
After measuring the amount of water needed (50 mL), put the beaker of water back into the freezer to maintain its temperature. Pour 50 mL of cold water into one detached chamber. Place the chamber with water and the chamber without water on a table side by side. Place the connected choice chambers with 5 sowbugs in the right and left* chambers on top of the separate chambers (one with 10 degree celsius water and one without water), adjust the pairs of chambers so the attached chambers are directly on top of the separated chambers. Every 30 seconds count and write the amount sowbugs in each chamber (from 30 seconds to five minutes).
We repeated this experiment using another five set of cups that contained 50 mL of 1M sodium chloride. After gathering the data, we calculated the change in weight of the yam cores, performed a t test and constructed graphs. After performing a t test, I found the p value
One sample had 250ng of plasmid A as well but with no enzymes added. All the digestions tubes were incubated at 37℃ for 30 minutes. After incubation, 5μL of loading buffer (30% glycerol, 10 mM Tris-HCl, pH 8, 1 mM EDTA, 0.025% bromophenol blue) was added to each sample. 50 ml of molten agarose (1% agarose boiled and cooled to 55℃ with added SYBRsafe) was poured into the casting tray for gel electrophoresis. Once the gel hardened, .5X TBE (44.5 mM Tris base, 44.5 mM boric acid, and 1.0 mM EDTA) was added just until the gel was covered with the TBE buffer.
The dried roots of Inula racemosa were pulverized and sieved with 100 ~ 200 mesh. The herb powder was placed into a glass bottle. Ultrasound-assisted extraction was carried out in an ultrasonic cleaner RK102H (Bandelin sonorex, Germany). The powder of Inula racemosa was extracted three times under the following conditions: the ratio of material to solvent was 10:1, undergoing ultrasonic treatment 30 minutes at 25 °C, 100 kHz /450 W.31 Before large extraction, a small-scale extraction experiments were carried out: 95% ethanol and ethyl acetate as the extractive solutions was investigated, respectively. The extraction efficiency was evaluated according to the percent content of AL and IS contained in the dried roots of Inula racemosa and calculated
