Does Eating a High Protein Diet Harm You

Protein is required by the body for the growth, maintenance and repair of all cells. Protein is a major component of all muscles, tissues and organs and is vital for practically every process that occurs within the body such as metabolism, digestion and the transportation of nutrients and oxygen in the blood. Having a high […]

Protein Synthesis

Protein synthesis is the process whereby proteins are produced, or synthesized, in living things according to “directions” given by DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and carried out by RNA (ribonucleic acid) and other proteins. Human Body: There are many applications that are being derived out of producing protein. As human being the bones of the human body […]

Protein Hydrolysis and Characterization

Proteins, from the Greek proteios, meaning first, are a class of organic compounds which are present in and vital to every living cell. In the form of skin, hair, callus, cartilage, muscles, tendons and ligaments, proteins hold together, protect, and provide structure to the body of a multicelled organism. In the form of enzymes, hormones, […]

Isolation and Purification of Proteins

The purpose of the experiment was to isolate and recognize varying protein solubilization and assaying methods by using bovine liver protein. The experiment implicated the impact of different types of solvents like ethanol, water, PBS, PBS+1% Triton x-100, and PBS+2% SDS on protein solubilization. Bradford and Ghosh/Dumbroff methods were used to calculate the amount of […]

Biology Protein Lab Report

The objective of this lab was to measure the amount of protein from a piece of beef liver . This was done by taking the liver, blending it and then using a centrifuge to separate the supernatant from the pellet. Once that was completed, ammonium sulfate was added to the supernatant, chilled and then spun […]
