Metabolism - Complex Exercise - Enzymes in Laundry Detergents


This document contains a complex exercise. It focuses on the use auf enzymes in laundry detergents as an application of typical high school biology knowledge on enzyme.

The exercise is tailored to require about 55 min of work when done in "one sitting" and in writing.

It includes the solutions and references to the following competencies:


- I can make a fact or circumstance clear by describing the involved elements, and pointing out causal correlations between them.

- I can draw logical conclusions based on known facts to answer a biological question.

- I can trace back a circumstance to a rule, biological law or causal correlation.

- I can describe diagrams formally.

- I can describe the data depicted in a diagram.

- I can analyze and interpret the data depicted in a diagram.

- I can plan, conduct, and evaluate experiments to test a hypothesis.


- I can describe the structure of enzymes.

- I can describe the course of enzyme-catalyzed reactions, and I can explain the influence enzymes have on substrates involved in these reactions.

- I can explain the influence enzymes have on the activation energy required by chemical reactions.

- I can list factors that influence an enzyme’s activity, and I can explain how these factors influence an enzyme and its activity.

- I can explain the significance of the active site of enzymes for their substrate specificity and their reaction specificity.

- I can name, explain, and compare different types of enzyme inhibition.
