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."""

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.

Using Physical Models of Biomolecular Structures To Teach Concepts of Biochemical Structure and Structure Depiction in the Introductory Chemistry Laboratory  Gordon A. Bain, John Yi, Mithra Beikmohamadi, Timothy M. Herman, and Michael A. Patrick
Custom-made physical models of alpha-helices and beta-sheets, the zinc finger moiety, beta-globin, and green fluorescent protein are used to introduce students in first-year chemistry to the primary, secondary, and tertiary structure of proteins.

Some Like It Cold: A Computer-Based Laboratory Introduction to Sequence and Tertiary Structure Comparison of Cold-Adapted Lactate Dehydrogenases Using Bioinformatics Tools  M. Sue Lowery and Leigh A. Plesniak
Students download sequences and structures from appropriate databases, create sequence alignments, and carry out molecular modeling exercises, and then form hypotheses about the mechanism of biochemical adaptation for function and stability. This laboratory is appropriate for biochemistry and molecular biology laboratory courses, special topics, and advanced biochemistry lecture courses, and can be adapted for honors high school programs.
