Nature of Proteins  
Effect of pH on solubility, denaturing proteins, hydrolysis in strong base, binding to coomassie blue, dying wool and cotton, gel filtration column, reaction of ninhydrin with amino acids and precipitating protein with ammonium sulfate are demonstrated.
Proteins / Peptides
Protein Reactions  
Curdling milk, decomposition of hydrogen peroxide by catalase, glucose oxidase activity, hydrolyzing of sucrose with invertase, and using an enzyme to halt the Briggs-Rauscher reaction are demonstrated. Inhibiting the enzyme HIV-1 protease may slow the spread of AIDS.

Denaturation of Protein by Strong Acid  John W. Moore, Jerrold J. Jacobsen, Gary Trammell, Kristin Johnson
"Strong acid denatures egg white proteins.This video contains voiceover:""The tertiary structure of egg white proteins is held together by hydrogen bonding and hydrophobic interactions. Adding strong acid to the protein disrupts the intermolecular forces, and the tertiary structure is lost. The loss in protein structure is called denaturation. The proteins precipitate, forming a white solid."""

Biochemistry : ComplementaryDNA (20 Variations)
Determine the sequence of the complementary DNA strand for the following sequence. (Note: Complementary strands match up 5' ends to 3' ends.)
5'-TAATGAGT-3'

Nucleic Acids / DNA / RNA
Biochemistry : HBondingDNA (9 Variations)
The structure and replication of DNA are strongly dependent on the hydrogen bonding system present in the double helix. How many functional groups in thymine can participate in hydrogen bonding? (This means all the groups, not just the ones that actually participate in hydrogen bonding in the double helix.)

Probing Changes in the Conformation of tRNAPhe: An Integrated Biochemistry Laboratory Course  Sarah R. Kirk, Todd P. Silverstein, Karen L. McFarlane Holman, and Buck L. H. Taylor
This guided-inquiry, laboratory course focuses on the biomolecule tRNAPhe and combines biochemistry with elements of bioorganic and bioinorganic chemistry. Throughout the semester students work collaboratively to study tRNAPhe structure and the influence of ligand binding under a variety of conditions using several analytical techniques.

Amino Acid Complementarity: A Biochemical Exemplar of Stoichiometry for General and Health Sciences Chemistry  Ed Vitz
Calculations demonstrating amino acid complementarity are presented as an interesting application of stoichiometry. Food proteins are said to have complementary amino acids when the proteins combine to provide amino acids in the proper stoichiometric ratios to synthesize human protein. Implications for vegetarian diet, efficiency of food production, and diet adaptations in various cultures are explored briefly.

Nonclassical or Reactivation Chain Polymerization: A General Scheme of Polymerization  Yen Wei
A new integrated model of polymerization is presented: the nonclassical or reactivation chain polymerization. In this model polymer growth involves chemical, physical, or biological reactivation of a dormant chain and subsequent reaction of the reactivated chain with incoming monomers to yield a new dormant chain of higher molecular weight.
