START LAB

Introduction

In this laboratory, you will perform simulations of experiments designed to study the biochemistry of the enzyme invertase, an important enzyme involved in the metabolism of the disaccharide sucrose. You will learn to measure and calculate important parameters of enzyme kinetics, and to measure product formation by spectrophotometry. Also, by changing reaction conditions and plotting enzyme kinetic data, you will learn about factors that influence the catalytic activity of invertase.

Objectives

The purpose of this laboratory is to:
