  • Enzymes
    • Intracellular
      • E.g. Catalase
      • Inside the cell
    • Extracellular
      • E.g. Amylase
      • E.g. Trypsin
      • Outside the cell
    • Anabolic
      • Build more complex molecules
    • Catabolic
      • Breakdown bigger molecules
    • Lock and Key Model
      • Active site is rigid - exact fit
      • Enzyme-substrate complex
      • Reaction occurs and products seperate
    • Induced Fit Model
      • Active Site is not rigid
      • Substrate can change the shape of active site
      • Enzyme-substrate complex
    • Activation Energy
      • Amount of energy needed for a reaction to occur
      • Enzymes provide an alternative pathway
      • Reactions can occur at low temperatures
    • Cofactors
      • Function
      • Prosthetic groups are a type of cofactor
      • Temporary association
    • Physical Factors
      • Temperature
      • Substrate Concentration
      • pH
      • Enzyme Concentration
    • Investigating Rates
      • Catalase
      • Reaction rate using oxygen
      • Volume of oxygen divided by time taken
