Amylase Electrophoresis Kit
Students take a hands-on and visual approach to understanding the activity of the enzyme amylase in a variety of samples. Students can design their own investigation by choosing to isolate their amylase from saliva, bean extract, or a variety of other samples. After running their protein samples on the gel they observe starch breakdown to determine the location of amylase bands. This advanced activity is the perfect inquiry component for your next protein lab.
