BC: What does it mean for an enzyme to get denatured??

FC: Enzymes!!!!

1: Enzymes are biological catalysts. What does that mean?

2: Biological: made of cells Catalyst: speeds up chemical reactions

3: Enzymes are made of proteins. Proteins are macro molecules (very large chemical chains).

4: What are the monomers (single units) of proteins called?

5: Amino acids!!! There are 20 amino acids *Humans can produce 10

6: Substrates: things that get changed in a chemical reaction.

7: For example: H2O2 gets changed to water and oxygen in the peroxidase lab.

8: Enzymes do not get changed in a chemical reaction. They are like the gas pedal of a car--the pedal is just used to accelerate the car, it doesn't change and can do it's job again.

9: The active site is the region on the enzyme where the substrate binds.
