Flashcards in Enzyme Review Deck (15):
1

pH of the acid in your stomach

2-3

2

Exothermic reactions releasze energy by what 2 things

heat 

light

3

what is shown in the lock and key model

a substrate that fits perfectly into the enzymes active site

4

an ____ reaction, is when there is less energy @ the end of the reaction than @ the beginning. 

an exothermic reaction, is when there is less energy @ the end of the reaction than @ the beginning. 

5

Amylase

enzyme found in saliva & begins the proccess of breaking down starches

6

Thousands to millions of these building blocks make up protein, & therefore enzymes

amino acids

7

Why is salt on the road effective

its an exothermic reaction which releases heat & melts the snow/ice on the roads, making it safe for drivers

8

an ____ reaction, is when there is more energy @ the end of the reaction than @ the beginning. 

an  endothermic reaction, is when there is more energy @ the end of the reaction than @ the beginning. 

9

Substrate Complex

Compound where an enzyme & substrate are bound

10

Cold temp. has this effect on enzymes

slows is down

11

The energy of an exothermic reaction are stored where

bonds of the products

12

suffix meaning (heat) energy

-thermic

13

Enzymes are a special class of this type of molecule

protein

14

if you slightly increase the tem. of an enzyme you'll increase the rate of reaction this way

slight increase to the temp. of an enzyme will speed up the chem. reaction

15

what starts a chem. reaction & found on left side of a chemical reaction equation

Reactants
