Activation Energy
The energy to start a chemical reaction. It breaks the existing chemical bonds.
1 of 5
Enzyme action is affected by...
Temperature, pH, substrate concentration and enzyme concentration.
2 of 5
Enzyme inhibitors
Molecules that bind to enzymes and decrease their activity.
3 of 5
Immobilised Enzyme
Enzyme attached to an inert insoluble matrix, eg. Gel capsule (alginate beads).
4 of 5
Biosensors
Work on the principle that enzymes are specific. They detect a specific substrate in a mixture of molecules even in very small concentrations.
