pH of 7.4 is optimum for Urease

The optimum pH is neutral, 7.

why not the optimum ph of pepsin in stomach is 1.4

Optimum pH - about neutral Optimum temperature - someone else can answer

The temperature optimum can be affected by pH if the pH chosen for a particular experiment deviates from the pH optimum for invertase

The correct pH range is + or - 0.5 of the optimum pH as the enzyme will often denature at pH's outside this range. The optimum pH varies from enzyme to enzyme as each one has different optimum conditions.

A pH of 1-3 would be optimum - it is usually maintained at a pH of 2.

All enzymes work at their maximum rate at a narrow range of pH ,called as the optimum pH.

Different enzymes have different optimum pH ranges.

The enzymes in the pancreas (which include several proteases, several nucleases, several elastases, pancreatic amylase, carboxypeptidase and steapsin) need to be of an alkaline pH (about pH8) to cancel out the highly acidic produce of the stomach. The pancreatic juices meet the bolus in the duodenum of the small intestine.

It is true that optimum pH promotes enzyme activity. If the pH is not at optimum level, the enzyme may not be able to function properly.

Well without specifying the parameters its impossible to say; the definition of optimum pH would be, the pH at which point the optimum results of a reaction are achieved.

pH optimum: 7.8 (pH 6.0: about 35% of maximal activity, pH 9.3: 40% of maximal activity)

The optimum pH of salivary amylase is 6.8 (slightly acidic).

6.30-6.50 may be optimum pH for the fungal diastase....

optimum pH of amylase from sweet potato is about 6.0

Lets take the example of enzymes. An enzymes optimum pH is the pH that the enzyme/s work best at (its ideal pH).

The optimum pH for enzyme amylase is 4.8. however, salivary amylase has an optimum pH of 6.7

Optimum temperature is the ideal temperature for the enzyme to flourish. Optimum pH is the best balance of acidity for that enzyme.

The most favorable pH value - the point where the enzyme is most active - is known as the optimum pH. Therefore the optimal pH is about 7

Enzymes do operate most efficiently at optimum pH.

It depends on what amylase you're talking about. For example, the amylase found in saliva has an optimum pH of around 5.6 whereas amylase from the pancreas has an optimum pH around 7.

The optimum pH of lactase is pH = 6.5.

Optimum pH of most enzymes is 7. Optimum pH is pH at which enzyme shows maximum activity .It all depends to the particular enzyme you are talking about, there is no general rule. for example in human pepsin catalyse the reaction at high acidic pH (1.5 to 3) whereas trypsin has optimum pH falls between 7 to 9 (neutral to basic).

The optimum pH for this would be pH 7.4, almost neutral.
