This week we basically just focused on the yeast ball lab and how quickly the yeast was catalyzed. So here’s what happened: Catalase which is found in both plant and animal cells has a very important function in which it prevents the accumulation of toxic levels of H2O2 (a by-product of metabolic processes). An example of… Continue reading Yeast Balls
This week was all about da enzymes. So what are they? Here’s the Bozeman video talking about all the details: http://www.bozemanscience.com/048-enyzmes/ But here are some of the basics: They are chemicals that aren’t consumed in a reaction but speed up the reaction For example, catalase is an enzyme that breaks down hydrogen peroxide into hydrogen and water… Continue reading Enzymes!
Reflecting back on the week, I discovered something: I am still really confused on macromolecules. So, I decided to really focus in on identifying the four different macromolecules, and here are summaries of each. DNA is found in the nucleus There are 4 different types of macromolecules: Nucleic Acids Essentially DNA and RNA Nucleotides are… Continue reading Organic Molecules + Some Basic Review
