... Enzymes are protein-based molecules that facilitate biochemical reactions. This paper investigates the factors affecting the catalase enzyme activity to the conclusion that temperature, pH, substrate concentration, and presence of enzyme inhibitors influence activity of the catalase enzyme.
Enzymology is a branch of science that studies the nature and functionality of enzymes. Catalase enzymes are susceptible to the environmental factors such as temperature, substrate concentration, pH level, enzyme concentration, and presence of enzyme inhibitors (Stocker, 2010; Saini, 2010). Substrate concentration is directly proportional to activity rate up to a point beyond which the reaction rate ...
