Protein and Result Starch Suspension

Good Essays
Topics: Protein, Amino acid
Title: Testing For Macromolecules Objective: Introduction Proteins are complex molecules which consists of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen. All proteins are made up of one or more polymers, known as polypeptides. Its monomers are amino acids. Protein can be divided into primary structure, secondary structure, tertiary structure and quaternary structure. It is important for all living things in the world as they form enzymes, antibodies and hormones. Materials and Procedures: Results and Discussions: Test for Carbohydrates Result Starch suspension When the yellowish-brown iodine was added into the starch suspension, the starch suspension was changed into dark blue. Potato slide Discussion Starch suspension When the yellowish-brown iodine was added into the starch suspension, the starch suspension was changed into dark blue. This is due to the yellowish-brown iodine changed into dark blue when there is a presence of starch. This shows a positive test for starch. Potato slide Many dark blue spots were visible under the microscope after the slide was irrigated with iodine. The formation of dark blue spots are the result of there is a presence of starch granules in the potato cells. This shows a positive test for starch. Discussion In the test tube that containing water, no cloudiness was observed Test for nucleic acid Result Discussion When the slide of onion epidermis that was stained with aceto-orcein stain was viewed under the microscope, it was found that each cell contained one red spot. These red spots contained nucleic acid and were actually the nucleus of the cell. Test for protein Result After the boiling tube that containing the egg white and sodium hydroxide solution was heated in the water bath, the egg white which was a white solid was dissolved to form a light yellow solution. The solution was then changed from light yellow to blue to dark purple

    four food apple sauce, carrot juice, cracker juice, and turkey juice contain protein, starch, or sugar. Between these four foods two are positive for sugar which are apple sauce and carrot juice. Sugar is an organic molecule of carbohydrate and so is starch. The starch was positive in two of the foods which are cracker juice and carrot juice. Protein is its own organic molecule and only one food tested positive for protein and it is the turkey juice. Introduction The “Food Lab” was used to answer…

    Brittney Humphries. Title: Testing for the Presence of Starches, and Proteins Purpose: To test for the presence of starches and protein macromolecules, to introduce the concept of variations in chemical compounds. Hypothesis: If biuret is blue after a test for protein, then it is a negative result because biuret reagent is blue to begin with. If a solution is pinkish purple, or purple, then the test for protein is positive. The test solution for starches is yellowish brown. If any substance…

    Testing for reducing sugars, non-reducing sugars, starch, lipids and proteins in unknown substances: Our aim: was to find out which substances from our five samples have reducing sugars present to determine what they may be for example; they could be monosacchrides or disaccharides. This was carried out by using Benedict’s test. To find out which substances from our five samples were non-reducing sugars, since some disaccharides are reducing sugars and this would be carried out by using Benedict’s…

    “Is Starch Permeable in Cells? Abstract This report presents the weights of 3 samples of water with various amounts of solute after the use of osmosis. Three different tests were performed, each with a beaker of water containing varying amounts of starch from 30% concentration (12.5 grams of water) to 15% concentration (9.5 grams of water), and then 0% (10.5 grams of water). To start this experiment, we put water into a make-shift dialysis tube, a type of semi-permeable membrane tubing made…

    Biosynthesis of Starch Introduction: In this lab we learned the concept and procedure of synthesizing starch. We also learned the effects of pH and temperature on the reaction rates of amylase.. In the process of the synthesis lab we learned phosphorylation using a potato, which was what we synthesized. The phosphorylation took place after the addition of primer. There are two different types of starches used are amylose and amylopectin. To test for the presence of starch, the Starch Test is used…
