Guided Enzyme Lab

Prelab for Enzyme Lab research catalase. What is catalase? what does it do and where is it found? get a 3d picture and label the active site. does it have an allosteric site? research the roles of kidney, heart and liver. Predict which would contain catalase and why? STRUCTURE=FUNCTION. What about plants (ex. potatoes) Why would plants have catalase. would you expect diff parts of plants to have diff amounts of catalase? Lastly, what are zymogens (what role do they play in digestion) take notes and then make into a clear consice background information that you wil end up putting into your journal.
