Protein Denaturation

About this Simulation

In the Protein Denaturation lab, you will learn the different ways to denature proteins and their relation to food science. You will perform various experiments using ovalbumin, the primary protein found in eggs, in order to understand the chemical and physical causes of protein denaturation, and how it affects food texture. Will you be able to unravel the mysteries of cooking an egg?

Learning Objectives

At the end of this simulation, you will be able to:

  • Understand what protein denaturation is

  • Understand how interactions between side groups influence the protein structure

  • Understand the chemical causes of protein denaturation

  • Understand the physical causes of protein denaturation

  • Remember the steps involved in protein denaturation

  • Understand the results of protein denaturation and how food texture changes as a result of it (coagulation)

  • Understand how biotechnology is used in daily life

Techniques in Lab

At the end of this simulation, you will be able to:
