  1. Unwrapping Enzyme Kinetics

    29 Aug 2021 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Christopher E. Berndsen1, Ian R. Roy1, Nithesh P. Chandrasekharan1

    James Madison University

    Enzyme rates and kinetics are key components used by biochemists to understand how enzymes function. However, students often find it difficult to understand how these experiments are performed and...

  2. The Avocado Lab: An Inquiry-Driven Exploration of an Enzymatic Browning Reaction

    29 Aug 2021 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Shelby T. Peres1, Kelsey A. Oonk2, Kasandra J. Riley*1

    1. Rollins College 2. Duke University Medical Center

    Typical biochemistry labs exploring basic enzyme activity rely on costly, time-consuming protein purification and rarely explore enzyme function in situ. Further, complex purification procedures...

  3. Analysis of Amylase Activity

    24 Nov 2020 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Allison Carter Burlyn1, Christina Fieber1, Melanie Lenahan2

    1. Horry-Georgetown Technical College 2. Raritan Valley Community College

    This lab is an exploration of enzyme function and the effects of environmental conditions on the activity of the enzyme amylase. The lab utilizes analytical and graphing skills to assess enzyme...

  4. Encouraging student collaboration and networking and improving student access to undergraduate research opportunities.

    24 Jul 2020 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Gary Laverty1, Metehan Cebeci1, Jessica Rainey1, R Rodney Cooper1

    University of Delaware

    We describe, as a case study, work done by two undergraduate students on a specific enzyme in the ciliate Tetrahymena thermophila.

  5. Evolution of Caffeine Biosynthesis Enzymes

    By Brian Sullivan1, Shuchismita Dutta2

    1. University of North Carolina 2. RCSB Protein Data Bank, Rutgers University

    This case focuses on exploring why plants make secondary metabolites like caffeine and how the enzymes required for making caffeine evolved.

  6. Michaelis-Menten Enzyme Kinetics

    11 Sep 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Tony Weisstein

    Truman State University

    In this simulation, equations used in enzyme kinetics (Michaelis-Menten, Eadie-Hofstee, Dixon, and Lineweaver-Burk) are modeled under various conditions.
