This lab allows students to observe that enzymes are proteins that catalyze biochemical reactions without altering the reaction equilibrium. Students will also observe that enzyme activity depends on the temperature, ionic conditions, and pH of the surroundings.
I've done a similar lab with the Catalase enzyme, but this one looks good too. I'd like to try it in my classroom. It's always better to have a variety of labs even if they are on the same topic. You may find that certain ones work better than others, and it's good to have a back up.

A great lab that allows students to witness how different conditions affect enzymatic activity.

Great way to show how enzymes work from a visual perspective.
