catalase temperature

Post by sohee » Tue Jan 31, 2006 5:30 am

Why catalase in the liver works best in cold temperature than hot temperature?
Thank you.

Cold temperature? Hot temperature? How cold? How hot? It must be specific. As far as I know the enzyme works well in body temperature, 36-37 oC :)

Have you freezed liver? did it work?
Every enzyme has an optimum temperature to work. :)

I did that experiment too. The reaction is very slow. And it is the same for heating it. The reaction slows down according to the degree you heat.

Anyone ever do the math with Delta G calculations? The collision rate of active sites can be rather perplexing.

For finding the optimum temp. of an enzyme think of the organism's body temp. It is about 37C in human.
I don't know when it denturates. Maybe you can make an experiment for finding this.
