I'm trying to do as much detailed research into copper (II) sulphate as an enzyme inhibitor as possible, as my AS coursework investigates the effects and I want to explain in as much detail as I can.
However, there's nothing in my textbook as it's not part of the syllabus for the exams. I've looked online and found almost nothing.
So I was wondering if anyone knew of any books that might be of any use. The school library has quite a wide variety of biology textbooks, but I thought it would be helpful if there were any I should look for in particular, so I could narrow down my search.
The ion, Cu2+, is a heavy metal metal ion. It acts as a non-active site directed inhibitor. Instead of researching the specific effect of copper ions, find out about heavy metal ions as enzyme inhibitors - which will be in your text book (as it should be in your syllabus).
I did find a bit about heavy metal ions as inhibitors.
Have you any advice on what statistical methods to use when analysing my results? I have used the standard deviation to show reliability of each set of results, and I am trying to calculate the rate, but I don't know how to calculate the rate when the concn is 0.
