Enzymes Lab Report Rough DraftPurpose:The purpose of this experiment was to determine the optimal temperatures and pH of the enzymecatalase. I learned that manipulating variables is a vital part of experimentation. This helps to see theeffects of the manipulated variables.Introduction:Catalase is an enzyme found in peroxisomes. Peroxisomes are found in most eukaryotic cells and breakdown hydrogen peroxide. Denaturation is the loss of structure in an enzyme due to the loss of function.The main causes of denaturation are extreme temperatures and pH as well as high salt concentrations.Some safety tips to remember are that we are dealing with extreme temperatures so there needs to becaution when heating and cooling the test tubes. Also, there is an acid involved as well as base and theyneed to be handled with care.My hypotheses were that as the temperature of the enzyme catalase
