Formative Practice 5.2 (Form 4 Biology Textbook Exercise and Answer)

Question 1:
How are enzymes produced?

Enzymes are extracted from natural resources such as bacteria or are produced synthetically in factories.

Question 2:
How does immobilized enzyme technology help to accelerate the enzyme reaction?

Through the immobilized enzyme technology, enzymes are attached to inert materials that enables increased resistance to changes in factors such as temperature and pH and this allows the enzymes to react at a maximum rate.

Question 3:
Give examples of industries that use enzymes in the manufacturing of products.

Immobilised enzyme technology is used in industries that produce high-fructose corn syrup, pectin hydrolysis and biodiesel.
