Brief Report:

A Workshop on “Enzyme Technology” was organized for the students of M.Sc. Semester I of the Department of Biotechnology, Patna Women’s College (Autonomous).

The study of enzymes and their uses in technological production of products is called enzyme technology. Enzyme is a substance that acts a catalyst in living organisms, regulating the rate at which chemical reactions proceed without itself being altered in the process. All the metabolic reactions in any living system have products as well as by products. Some enzymes are used to catalyze or speed up the reaction to obtain a product which will give us energy, and some are used to destroy the by-products of those reactions which should be removed from the body or else they will cause damage to our cell.

One such enzyme is “catalase” which was studied during this workshop. How can catalase help any living system to detoxify the effect of hydrogen peroxide (by-product of various metabolism) which might create free radicals? Free radicals are harmful for the cell and may lead to many chronic diseases like cancer, aging etc.
