Identifying Proteins and Amino Acids: Structure and Properties—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Investigate the roles of amino acids in the structure and properties of proteins and learn how these biological molecules can be identified in the lab. With the Identifying Proteins and Amino Acids: Structure and Properties—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, identify proteins and amino acids using a series of classification tests. Proteins will be identified using a simple color test based on the reaction of their polypeptide backbones with copper ions in basic solution.
