Since its 2013 demonstration as a genome editing tool in Arabidopsis and tobacco — two widely used laboratory plants — CRISPR has been road-tested in crops, including wheat, rice, soybeans, potatoes, sorghum, oranges and tomatoes. By the end of 2014, a flood of research into agricultural uses for CRISPR included a spectrum of applications ...
Lab Activity: Testing the action of the enzyme, lactase, on lactose and sucrose, two disaccharide sugars. Introduction: Lactose is a disaccharide sugar found in milk, and is composed of two simpler sugars, glucose , a six-sided molecule, and galactose , another six-sided molecule.
1. Cut a thin transverse section of potato with a rajor and put it in a petri-dish. 2. Immerse the section in 2% alcoholic solution of gum guaiacum (benzidine). Wait for about 15 minutes and observe the changes. 3. Take another fresh section of potato, boil it in water and repeat the same procedure mentioned above in points (1) and (2). (B) Peroxidase: 1.

You can modify this lab to test the effect of enzyme concentration, pH, or salinity. Similarly, you can follow up this experiment by having students designing their own experiment to test one of these factors. Enzyme Activity: With 3ml H 2 O 2 and 3ml H 2 O in each tube, add 1 drop of enzyme suspension. Repeat with 2, 3, and 4 drops.
This solution contains many cellular extracts from the potato; catalase is just one of the many enzymes in this solution. The basic catalase reaction: You can tell if this reaction is occurring if you can see 0 2 gas (small bubbles) rise and collect as foam at the top of the solution in the test tube.
Potato Enzyme Lab. INTRODUCTION. An enzyme is a protein that speeds up or slows down a specific chemical reaction in an organism. A good rule of thumb is to remember that enzyme names end in "-ase". This will help in identifying enzymes in further readings. Generally enzymes are catalysts.
