    I am doing a PBL on enzymes at the minute on how they are used in industry and what happens when a problem happens within that industry (how it is solved).

    The enzyme I have picked is horseradish peroxidase used in galactomanna EIA.

    Can anyone tell me anything about how the enzyme works in this process?

    Thanks

    Really? I never would have thought of google!

    Part of the PBL is that I have to submit the question to a student forum. That is the only reason I submitted the question. But thanks for your useful suggestion!

    Really?!? I'd love to know which uni teaches you to ask other people to do your work for you rather than learn how to do your own research. I'm yet to meet an academic who encourages their students to do this and I work in academia. I certainly don't encourage my students to.

    I am more than capable of doing my own research and I have done for this. I don't actually need anyone to answer the question for me. It's about learning how to problem solve in industry, which I guess does involve being able to ask for help when and if it is needed. But not to worry, I also have to mention any problems I encountered doing this bit of research and thanks to your abrasive and frankly rude answers I have one. Why are you part of a student forum if not to assist and guide students? I'm glad I'm not one of your students

    If you've ever worked in industry or do end up doing so you'll learn very quickly that it doesn't tend to publicly share stuff being working on and everything is heavily guarded by confidentiality agreements. For this reason, anyone trying to teach you to use public forums to solve problems encountered while working in industry is not doing well by you unfortunately.

    I'm sorry you find a bit of a reality check abrasive. The rude bit I'm not so sure about but that's not how it was meant. Assisting and guiding students is very different from hand holding and spoon feeding them and when and if you ever get to the stage of being involved in teaching in higher education you too will realise that the latter can be very damaging to students. Doing your own research and being stuck on something or not understanding something and then asking is very different from generally asking people to collect information for you.

    My work on this forum has helped several students over the years I've been involved with it which is why I continue to be. Anyway, good luck with your PBL.
