Substrate Specificity Field Test Kit©

Help your students achieve that "aha moment" with this simple but elegant kit that demonstrates the highly-specific interaction between a substrate and an enzyme. 

With the Substrate Specificity Field Test Kit© students can:
  • Use color-coded functional groups to construct a substrate and examine its chemical properties.
  • Use a mini toober to engineer an enzyme active site specific to the substrate constructed.
  • Explore different types of specificity including stereochemical specificity and absolute specificity.
  • Discover how subtle changes in enzyme structure can potentially have a significant impact on substrate binding in the active site.
