Purpose of catalysts
Speed up chemical reactions in living organisms
1 of 7
Properties of enzymes
Large proteins, each enzyme catalyses a specific reaction, work best at a specific temperature and pH called the optimum
2 of 7
Denaturing
When high temperature and extremes of pH make enzymes change shape
3 of 7
Amylase
Produced in salivary glands and pancreas, carbohydrase that breaks down starch into sugar
4 of 7
Protease
[roduced in the stomach, pancreas and small intestine, breaks down proteins into amino acids
5 of 7
Lipase
Produced in the pancreas and small intestine, breaks down lipids (fats) into fatty acids and glycerol
6 of 7
Bile
Made in the liver and stored in the gall bladder, alkaline to neutralise hydrochloric acid from the stomach, emulsifies fat to form small droplets, increasing surface area for enzymes to act on
