vicky91 asks:

Hey, i am doing my coursework and would like to know how calcium ions actually affect the rate of coagulation as i need to apply background information. I understand the rennin being the enzyme causing the coagualation, but why does the rate of coagulation get faster as concentration of calcium ions increase...what do they do exactly?!
Thankyouu aghh confused!

etutor answers:
The mechanism is highly complex and you are not expected to know it - just that an increase in calcium ions increases coagulation. The calcium seems to effect the milk itself rather than the enzyme.
