  • Monday, September 9, 2013 ( 5th & 7th )

    What type of macromolecules is an enzyme?



A type of Protein



1. Identify the role of enzymes

2. Describe the components of an energy hill diagram

Role of enzymes

Role of Enzymes

  • Characteristics

    1) are proteins

    2) Are catalyst

    3) End in –ASE (Ex: Amylase in saliva)

  • Catalyst = speeds up the rate of a

    chemical reaction

Active site

Active Site

  • Substrate= material on which enzyme acts

  • Active Site = site of chemical reaction between (btw) substrate & enzyme

Lock and key

Lock and Key

  • Enzymes & substrates  Lock & Key relationship

  • Enzymes will fit a SPECIFIC substrate

Activation energy

Activation Energy

  • Activation Energy = energy needed to get a reaction started

Enzymes as robots

Enzymes as robots

  • Enzymes perform the SAME reaction over and over again

  • The enzyme is NEVER altered! Only the substrate.



  • Inhibitor = molecule that binds to enzymes & decreases their activity

  • Competitive Inhibitor = binds to active site of enzyme & prevents substrate binding

  • Ex. Chemotherapy

Enzymes in your body

Enzymes in your body

  • Enzymes found in saliva:

  • Amylase- help break down carbs

  • Protease- help break down protein

    3. Lipase - help break down fats

Enzymes in products

Enzymes in products

  • Laundry Detergent- (Tide, Arm & Hammer, Oxy Clean) contains protease, amaylase and mannanase

  • Frizz Ease- contains dismutase; converts superoxide and protons.

Reminder summary


  • Draw horizontal line at end of notes

  • Write “Summary”

  • Write 3-5 sentences about specific things you learned about enzymes

  • Use COMPLETE sentences

Create an enzyme

Create an Enzyme

  • Create an enzyme that would help you in your life. (Example: helps you finish a chore in 1 minute)

  • Name the enzyme (remember end in –ASE)

  • Draw a picture of the enzyme. Use at least 3 colors.

  • Write 2 complete sentences explaining how the enzyme will help you out.

    ***Worth 4 stamps…remember you can earn a 5th stamp for extra credit if you create a WOW assignment***

Enzyme reading assessment

Enzyme Reading Assessment


***Do NOT write on the handout***

1. The provided reading is divided into 4 sections. Read each one.

2. Summarize each section using a 7-9 word complete

sentence. (you should have 4 short summaries)

3. After you complete the 4 sections, summarize the

entire passage using 13-15 words. (5 summaries total)
