Demonstrate and explain what is Catalase
Enzymes are very large and complex organic molecules that are synthesized by the cell to perform very specific functions. These biological catalysts are important because they speed up the rate of the reaction they catalyze that would otherwise be too slow to support life. Catalase is an enzyme present in the cells of plants, animals and aerobic (oxygen requiring) bacteria. It promotes the convers
What is the dissolution rate of lactase pills
The purpose of this experiment was to determine the rate of dissolution for several dairy digestive supplements, lactase pills. I became interested in this idea because I am lactose intolerant and I wanted to buy the fastest acting pill. The information gained from this experiment would help consumers know which brand of lactase pills will dissolve fastest so they can make the best purchasin
Examine the interactions of class A and C ß-lactamases as they interact with ß-lactam antibiotics.
ß-lactamases are the principal agents of bacterial resistance to many penicillins, cephalosporins, and other ß-lactam antibiotics. The main objective is to understand the interactions of class A and C ß-lactamases as they interact with ß-lactam antibiotics in order to model a non-ß-lactam inhibitor into the active site. This would stop the hydrolytic power of ß-lactamases and rejuvenate ß-lactam a
Determine if translation and transcription of RNA in cells affects the levels of Ribonuclease H (RNase H)
Ribonuclease H is an enzyme that may be useful as a treatment for breast cancer because it can stop the production of estrogen in tumor cells. To find more about this enzyme, the purpose of this experiment was to determine if translation and transcription of RNA in cells affects the levels of Ribonuclease H (RNase H).
Generational effects of acid rain on Drosophila melanogaster
The purpose of this experiment was to test the effects of acid rain on several generations of living organisms. This researcher was interested in exploring whether mutations, found in an acid environment would also be observed if the offspring were removed from the acid environment into a neutral environment. Drosophila melanogaster were selected as subjects, due to their short life span, ease of
Which Parent Affects Fingerprint Pattern Types More?
The purpose of my project is to find out if the male parent or the female parent affects the offspring's fingerprints more.
Does Mass Affect the Emergence of a Soybean Seed?
The purpose of this project is to determine if mass affects the emergence of a soybean seed. This experiment was set up to verify if the size of a soybean affects how it grows.
What is the Effect of Anhydrous Ammonia on the Dehydration Rate of Plant and Animal Cells?
The purpose of this experiment was to compare the dehydration rate of plant and animal cells exposed to anhydrous ammonia. The information gained from this experiment could help people preserve food. Also it will help with food transportation because dehydration cuts down the weight by taking away the moisture. This could also help space travel.
What side of a plant's leaf takes in atmospheric gases?
Ten (10) students say the top of the leaf takes in gases because when rain and watering cans water plants it comes from above and hits the top of the plant leaves first. Ten (10) say the bottom of the leaf takes in gases because after observing the leaves from each plant the bottom of the leaves were more veiny and the skin of the bottom leaves seemed thinner. The top of the plant leaf had a t
What effect do magnets have on the growth of seedlings?
The purpose of this experiment is to determine whether magnets have an effect on the growth of radish seedlings. I became interested in the study of the effect magnets, when I discovered that magnets could make you heal faster. Later I decided that that it would be a better idea to study the effect of magnets on plants to keep it a safe experiment.
