Freshly made enzyme solution

Post by ilovebiochemistry » Sun Jan 18, 2009 12:21 pm

I did an experiment in the lab on Friday and the instructions said:

"It is essential the enzyme solution is made fresh immediately prior to use"

I was just wondering why this is. Is it just cos of denaturation or something else?

Thanks

probably the enzyme degrades easily... But yeah, it depends on the enzyme
