Ch 6: AP Biology - Enzymatic Biochemistry: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Enzymatic Biochemistry chapter of this AP Biology Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about enzymatic biochemistry. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the enzymatic biochemistry functions and groups required in a typical AP biology course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other AP biology work.
  • Identify the enzymatic biochemistry concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our AP biology tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn enzymatic biochemistry and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding enzymes, coenzymes, enzymatic reactions, or any other enzymatic biochemistry topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
  • Prefer learning science visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their AP biology - enzymatic biochemistry unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in AP biology
  • Don't have access to their science teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning enzymatic biochemistry simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live biology tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn enzymatic biochemistry on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the function of enzymes.
  • Explain the environmental effects of enzymes.
  • Discuss the interactions that occur between cofactors, coenzymes and prosthetic groups.
  • Learn how enzymatic reactions are regulated and inhibited.

Function of Enzymes: Substrate, Active Site & Activation Energy

1. Function of Enzymes: Substrate, Active Site & Activation Energy

In this lesson, we'll learn how enzymes function to lower the activation energy of a chemical reaction. Enzymes bind to their substrates to perform all kinds of important and essential cellular processes, as well as processes that help you enjoy a slice of pizza!

Enzyme Activity & Inhibition: Structure, Substrates, pH & Temperature

2. Enzyme Activity & Inhibition: Structure, Substrates, pH & Temperature

Enzymes appreciate the right working conditions. Can you blame them? We all work best in the correct environment. In this lesson, we'll learn how substrate concentration, temperature, and pH affect enzyme activity and structure.

Coenzymes, Cofactors & Prosthetic Groups: Function and Interactions

3. Coenzymes, Cofactors & Prosthetic Groups: Function and Interactions

Some enzymes require helpers to recognize a substrate or complete a reaction. These helpers include cofactors, coenzymes, and prosthetic groups, which are required for some enzymes' functions.

Enzymatic Reactions: Inhibition and Regulation

4. Enzymatic Reactions: Inhibition and Regulation

Enzymes are generally not allowed to run uncontrolled in a cell. While they are useful in catalyzing reactions, there is a time and place for everything. In this lesson, we'll discuss enzyme activators and inhibitors that regulate these reactions positively and negatively, respectively.

Coenzyme: Definition & Examples

5. Coenzyme: Definition & Examples

Even the most simplistic organisms can be complex. There are many inner workings of individual cells that occur in order for us to survive. At times, the cells need help completing their tasks. This lesson explores cells co-workers or the coenzymes.
