Which two factors can alter the shape of an enzyme?

1 of 10
Where is amylase produced?
Salivary glands, pancreas and the small intestine
2 of 10
What are the products of lipid (fat) digestion?
Fatty acids and glycerol
3 of 10
Which acid is produced by the stomach?
Hydrochloric acid
4 of 10
What is the function of bile?
To neutralise acid from the stomach
5 of 10
Why are proteases used in baby foods?
They predigest food so the baby can absorb it more easily
6 of 10
Give two types of reaction controlled by enzymes in the cells
Breaks down large molecules into small ones and changes one molecule into another
7 of 10
Why does increasing the temperature increase the rate of a reaction?
The molecule have more energy so they move around faster and collide more often so the reaction is quicker.
8 of 10
Give one advantage and one disadvantage of using enzymes in the industry
Less energy is needed and costly to produce
9 of 10
Why do biological washing powders work more efficiently than non-biological powders?
The enzymes speed up the digestion of stains from food and they work in lower temperatures that saves money
