Chymosin lab

1. Which variables influence enzyme performance in general?

2. With these variables in mind, hypothesize: What are the optimal conditions for the performance of chymosin? (Hint: you might investigate the normal conditions under which substances like chymosin are active).

3. Briefly describe an investigation aimed at optimizing one variable in chymosin Performance.


Milk contains casein

Milk contains casein

  • Casein- German, Kase= cheese

  • Casein is an emulsifying protein

  • It is also a storage protein

  • Structurally similar to gluten (found in grains)


Cheese is made from curdled milk

Cheese is made from curdled milk

  • Rennet is added from the 4th stomach of a calf

  • Rennet contains chymosin

  • Chymosin is an enzyme which cuts casein


Enzymes

ENZYMES

  • They are protein catalysts

  • They speed up reactions inside cells

  • They are incredibly specific

  • They are incredibly efficient

  • -ase = “enzyme”


Chymosin is a protease

Chymosin is a protease

  • A protease is an enzyme which cuts proteins

  • Specifically, it is an aspartate protease

  • Has an aspartate residue at its active site

  • HIV-Protease 1 is also an aspartate protease


Enzymes make it easier for reactions to happen

Enzymes make it easier for reactions to happen


Reactions can be exergonic yet slow they require activation energy

Reactions can be exergonic, yet slow- they require activation energy


Lowering the activation energy makes enzyme catalyzed reactions faster

Lowering the activation energy makes enzyme-catalyzed reactions faster

The stages of enzyme catalysis

The stages of enzyme catalysis

  • Substrate(s) binding

  • Reaction of substrate to form product(s)

  • Release of products

  • The enzyme is ready to bind the next substrate

  • Enzymes are unchanged by the reactions they catalyze


Enzyme inhibition enzymes can be sped up or slowed down

Effects of temperature and ph

Effects of Temperature and pH

Each enzyme has an optimal temperature in which it can function

Each enzyme has an optimal pH in which it can function

Tertiary structure can be radically altered by changes in pH
