One of the many remarkable enzymes in the human body is carbonic anhydrase. which catalyzes the interconversion of carbon dioxide and water with bicarbonate ion and protons. If it were not for this enzyme, the body could not rid itself rapidly enough of the 002 accumulated by cell metabolism. The enzyme catalyzes the dehydration (release to air) of up to 107 002 molecules per second. Which components of this description correspond to the terms enzyme, substrate, and turnover number?
Week 2 Notes Chapter 2 All matter is composed of atoms Looking at Atoms Binning and Rohrer created an imaging technique, scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), that can see individual atoms and molecules during the 1980's Atoms are incredibly small, and are the smallest identifiable form of an element There are 91 naturally occurring elements, and over 20 synthetic elements, which are elements scientists have made in labs Early Understandings of Matter People wanted to know how far you could divide objects First idea of an atom came from Leucippus and Democritus which they called "atomos" in the fifth century BC The ideas of Leucippus and Democritus were controversial as other influential thinkers of
