Conservation of Genetic Information

The protein make-up of an organism is unique to that individual species, however many essential proteins are highly conserved.  This level of conservation can be seen when protein fingerprinting ..

Ion Exchange Chromatography

Ion exchange chromatography is used to separate charged molecules from complex biological samples. The charged molecules bind to a solid support carrying an opposite charge to the molecule. Proteins..

Affinity Chromatography

Affinity chromatography is a powerful tool for the purification of specific biomolecules, including proteins. The basic principle is that a biospecific ligand is immobilized to a solid support or resi..

Assaying for Amylase Activity (Lab 6C/6D)

This kit is designed to teach 8 groups of four students the principles of enzyme assays.   The kit contains the reagents to allow students to test for the presence and activity of 2 differe..

Assays for Protein Quantification

Determination of protein concentration is an essential technique in all aspects of protein studies and proteomics.    The Assays for Protein Quantification kit includes three of the mo..

Biodiversity Study and Biomass Analysis

Biodiversity lab activity is designed for determination of protein contents and biomass in diverse biological samples to study how biomass is related to biodiversity in nature. Students collect a..

Characterizing Proteins by PAGE (Lab 5F)

This kit is designed to teach 8 groups of four students the principles of Protein Electrophoresis. The kit contains the reagents to allow students to: Conduct a serial dilution of a stock amy..

Determining the Concentration of Amylase (Lab 7D)

This kit is designed to teach 8 groups of four students the principles of protein concentration estimation assays. The kit contains the reagents to allow students to: Conduct a serial dilution o..

Enzyme Analysis

Enzymic proteins are functional molecular engines of life and as such carry out cellular reactions in cells. Enzymes convert a target molecule (substrate) into a different molecule (product). Enzymes ..

Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic Proteins

Recent proteomic studies have led scientists to estimate that there are almost a million different proteins in a single human cell.  The function and properties of these proteins are highly disti..

Hydrophobic Chromatography

Hydrophobic chromatography is based on the fact that protein molecules can have extensive hydrophobic regions.  These hydrophobic regions, in media favoring hydrophobic interactions, such as an a..

Physical Properties of Proteins

Proteins are the building blocks of life and there are estimated to be almost 1 million different proteins in a normal animal cell.  Each protein has very different and unique physical properties..
