About This Chapter
FTCE Biology: Enzymes - Chapter Summary
Passing the FTCE Biology 6-12 is a requirement for 6th through 12th grade biology teachers needing certification. Prepare for question on enzymes, cofactors and prosthetic groups through the series of lesson videos presented in this chapter. After watching these videos you should have a better understanding of:
- The functions of enzymes
- How cofactors and prosthetic groups interact with enzymes
- Enzymatic inhibition and regulation
Following these lesson videos, take quizzes as a way to assess what topics you may still need to review. Review these topics using the jump feature in the timeline that will take you directly to key topics in the video lessons. You can also read over lesson transcripts, which highlight key terms in bold for easy reference.
FTCE Biology 6-12: Enzymes Objectives
The computer-based FTCE Biology 6-12 is the certification exam for biology teachers wanting to teach grades 6 through 12 in Florida. It includes 120 multiple-choice questions for which test takers are given two hours and 30 minutes to complete. Of the 120 questions on the FTCE Biology 6-12, 14% are on the chemical processes of living things, including the chemical functions of enzymes. The content of this chapter is intended to help you review the functions of enzymes and coenzymes as you prepare for these questions.
1. 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.
2. 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.
