Once iodine was dropped onto the circle labeled “ Saliva”, it transformed into a white/ yellow Colour, due to it granting the starch to break down properly, it transformed white as a result of there being no starch, hence it executed its main action. Once iodine was dropped onto the circle, which was labeled “HCL+ saliva”, was divided into two colours, white and navy blue, this arose because the starch did not get broken down. The enzyme got denatured with the extension of hydrochloric acid of hydrochloric acid. The acid found in hydrochloric acid obtains a low level oh pH (2), causing it not to be broken down, rather to be denatured, confirms amylase can’t continue it’s activity without a particular high amount of acid, (that is found in stomach acid). My hypothesis is incorrect due to the fact that my prediction is completely different outcome; I stated that at least two out of the three procedures would be broken down, while in reality only one got broken
As the data from the lab shown, all throughout the experiment there were color changes, but each experiment had the same color. Both of the test tubes were put on a hot plate at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the normal body temperature. This was done in order to see if a reaction had occurred. The low pH water and the distilled water had altered colors, this means the enzymes in both test tubes had broken down the starch. The Ketogenic diet lab for control and experimental came out positive, this means that the diet is effective.
Denaturation is the disruption and/or the possible destruction of the secondary and tertiary structures in the protein. The sequence of amino acids or the primary structures remain the same as the denaturation reactions are not strong enough to break the peptide bonds therefore only disrupting the normal alpha-helix and beta sheets and disentangling them into random
MM 3320 : Report Mass Spectrometry Submitted by Velu K R NA12B033 Introduction Mass Spectroscopy is an instrumental method for identifying the chemical constitution of a substance by means of the separation of gaseous ions according to their differing mass and charge. This method helps identify the amount and type of chemicals present
water molecule). We can define the density of the water molecules at a given distance from the central atom and define solvation beads. We used PTRAJ to run the analysis for Glu21, Leu19, Asp25 and Asp29 residues of both chains. Number of water molecules is obtained by defining spheres of increasing rays centered on the atom, and counting the total encircled molecules for each sphere regarding the central atom. The calculation is repeated for 0.1 ps interval and at the end divided the number of atoms present in each sphere by the volume of the sphere and by the density of those atoms in the system.
The absorbance at 540 nm was used to estimate protein content in aqueous, saturated fractions and purified extract. 3.9.5 Sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE): The electrophoresis was performed according to Laemmli, (1971) using 10% acrlyamide. The gels were cast by mixing the ingredients as detailed below. Table3.3: Ingredients of gel casting.

Fraction I was discarded due to the presence of high fatty substances, whereas fraction II was analysed for the free flavonoids in each of the samples. Fraction III of each of the test samples was dried and hydrolysed by refluxing with 7% H2SO4 (10 ml/gm residue) for 5 hours on water bath. The mixture was filtered and the filtrate extracted with ethyl acetate in a separating funnel. The ethyl acetate layer was washed with distilled water till neutrality and dried in vacuum. The residues were taken up in small volumes of ethanol separately and then subjected to various tests for
Introduction Circular dichroism (CD) is form of light absorption spectroscopy that measures the difference in absorbance of right- and left-circularly polarized light (rather than the commonly used absorbance of isotropic light) by a substance. It is applicable for molecules have one or more chiral chromophores . Circular dichroism = ΔA(λ) = A(λ)LCPL - A(λ)RCPL, where λ is the wavelength This technique measured a molecule over a range of wavelengths. All chiral molecules can be studied, particularly in study of large biological molecules. A primary application is in the analysing the conformation of macromolecules or secondary structure (particularly proteins).
Like all other nutrients, carbohydrates and lipids, they first come into the cavity of stomach. The stomach acidity degrades them into smaller particles such as peptons and peptides. Because they are still not enough smaller to be absorbed through the mucosa of intestines, these smaller digested protein particules pass into the cavity of intestines and they are decomposed and converted into the smallest components of proteins, amino acids, by the effect of special protein compounds, enzymes. Briefly, the complex proteins are degraded into the smallest compounds, amino acids, by the effect of both stomach acidity and enzymes. Amino acids can be absorbed through the mucosa cells of intestines and transferred into blood circulation and then they can reach into the cells in every parts of the body.
After extraction, the purity of the isolated products can be checked using TLC. TLC is also used to confirm the identity of the extracted crystals. The two main laboratory techniques performed during this lab, acid-base extraction and Thin Layer Chromatography, offer methods to separate and confirm the identity and purity of the separated components of the Excedrin tablet. Acid-base extraction depends on the properties of the compound you want to separate like the acidity and solubility. Solubility matters since organic compounds tend to not be soluble in aqueous solvents, but ionic salts do easily dissolve in water.
