Catalase is an enzyme present in the cells of plants, animals and aerobic (oxygen requiring) bacteria. It promotes the conversion of hydrogen peroxide, a powerful and potentially harmful oxidizing agent, to water and molecular oxygen…

Introduction

The student feels that the more the concentration of the liver the more the enzyme that would result since more amount of oxygen would react with the hydrogen peroxide molecules. For accomplishing this, the student has taken five test tubes with the first test tube having twice the suspension as that of the fifth tube expecting that there would be twice the amount of oxygen given off. This seems that the student wants to prove that the amount of oxygen that would be evolved would be directly proportional to the amount of the liver suspension take. Since it cannot be decided in a single experiment the student repeats it three times to observe whether the desired changes have taken place in each experiment or not. The independent variable to be considered here would be the amount of liver suspension and distilled water and the dependent variable would be the amount of oxygen evolved. This experiment deals with quantitative analysis. ...

However, membranes are not only passive barriers. They include a set of proteins specialized for promoting or catalyzing various cellular processes (Nelson & Cox 2004, p.369). Molecular transportation is the most important function of membranes facilitated by carrier and channel proteins (McKee 2004, p.62).…

We went through intricate aseptic techniques for preparing microbial cultures from the commensal population of microbes in the GI tract isolated from the diabetic and normal rats for recording their count from the extent of lactate, acetate, and glucose production based on four kinds of bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacteriaceae sp, Lactobacillus sp, and Enterococcus sp. The basic kinds…

Additionally, the iron sulfide can cause upsets in treating systems and plugging in disposal wells. Aside from its corrosive nature, H2S is also a very toxic and very flammable gas. At low levels, H2S has a "rotten egg" smell. At levels of 100 ppm, H2S will paralyze the olfactory system, making it appear odorless. At levels above 700 ppm, H2S can kill instantly. To add to the threat this creates,…
