The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of varying the concentration of peroxidase on rate of reaction, as well as, the varying temperature and pH levels. Enzymes are proteins that catalyze biochemical reactions that work by reducing the activation energy for each reaction, causing an increase to the rate of the reaction. One class of enzymes are known as peroxidase. Peroxidase catalyze the oxidation of a particular substrate by hydrogen peroxide. Meaning that it eliminates H2O2 in order to prevent damage to the cells and tissues (Department of Biology University of Tampa 74). Peroxidase is the most reliable and accessible enzyme to use as it can be easily prepared and tested (Ramesh Kumar 1). An enzymes shape is critical
