Class Motto
If there is a problem,
We look for a solution.
If there is a better way,
We find it.
If we need help,
We ask.
If a teammate needs help,
We give.
• We will be talking about Science and
Engineering Expo Projects on Thursday/Friday.
Come with research question (I have some of
• Enzymes Quiz Tomorrow
• Enzymes project due
– Thursday: Periods 1, 2, 4, 6
– Friday: Periods 5, 7
• SB1b. Explain how enzymes function as
• Catalysts speed up chemical reactions.
• Enzymes are catalysts in living things.
• Catalysts and enzymes work by lowering the
activation energy necessary for a reaction to
EA is lowered by the enzyme
How are enzymes denatured?
• Denatured = Destroyed
• Enzymes are denatured by high temperatures
and low pH (acids)
Collision Theory Gizmo
• How did temperature affect the speed of
molecules in the Gizmo?
• How would this change the reaction?
So how would adding a catalyst affect
the reaction?
• Would it affect the speed of the molecules?
• Would it affect the speed of the reaction?
• I can explain what it means for an enzyme to
be specific, unchanged, and reusable.
• I can recall the two ways enzymes are
• I can identify the parts of an enzyme/substrate
• I can summarize the importance of enzymes in
living organisms.
Notes 2.3: Enzymes and Catalysts
• This is a continuation from last week! You
may write on the same notes paper.
Substrate: the material that an enzyme
binds to
Enzyme-Substrate Complex: enzyme and
substrate together
Active site: location where the substrate
binds on the enzyme
• Enzymes often end in “ase”
– Lactase (breaks down lactose)
– Helicase (unzips DNA)
– Amylase (breaks down amylose)
– Lipase (breaks down lipids)
Enzymes (Think – Pair – Share)
• What’s a substrate?
• What do enzymes usually end in?
• Is lactase an enzyme or a substrate? How do
you know?
• What do you predict is the substrate for the
enzyme sucrase?
Characteristics of Enzymes
• Enzymes are:
–Unchanged in a reaction
Characteristics of Enzymes
Enzymes are specific:
• They only work with one reaction
• The enzyme and the substrate fit together like
a lock and a key
• Think: How does this game show related to
the characteristics of enzymes?
Characteristics of Enzymes
Or you might see it like this…
• You will have to be
ready to read a
variety of different
Enzymes (Think – Pair – Share)
• What is an enzyme?
• What does it mean to say that enzymes are specific?
• What does it mean to say that enzymes are
• Why are enzymes important?
What is structure X?
What is structure Y?
What is structure Z?
Enzyme Disorders
*LEL (Low Enzyme Levels) is America's & the world’s number one
cause of sickness and death.
*Inhibitors are molecules that decrease enzyme activity, and activators
are molecules that increase activity. Drugs and poisons are often
enzyme inhibitors.
Cystic Fibrosis
Gaucher's Disease
Low Stomach Acid
Inflammatory Bowel
• Intestinal Inflammation
Ulcerative Colitis
Pancreatic Insufficiency
Classwork 2.3: Enzymes
• You will have 15 minutes to work on this
• Graded for accuracy!
Enzymes Project
Objective: Manipulate enzyme cut outs to
represent a chemical reaction in our body.
Directions: 2 people at each table start with
part A and 2 people start cutting. Then switch!
Panther Pass
1. What do enzymes do?

Enzymes cannot be reused after a reaction
Enzymes are organic catalysts
Enzymes slow down chemical reactions
Enzymes can bind to any substrate
