How enzymes work
- Interactive modeling
- How enzymes function and impact reactions
Our popular foam protein kit introduces your students to enzymes. They will use the engaging foam model pieces and activities to identify the substances involved in enzymatic activity, explore how enzymatic reactions occur, demonstrate catabolism and anabolism and much more.
The Enzymes in Action Kit© creates catalytic connections with models. The kit’s colorful foam pieces represent enzymes, which speed up chemical reactions within cells, and substrates, the small molecules upon which enzymes act.
The protein model kit allows you to:
Simulate enzymatic actions.
Explain enzymatic specificity.
Investigate 2 types of enzyme inhibitors used in regulating enzymatic activity.
Examine how an enzyme may affect activation energy.
