What are the Basics of Biochemical Techniques?

Biochemical studies or Biochemical Techniques rely on the availability of appropriate analytical techniques and their applications. This undergraduate course deals with the different biochemical techniques such as spectrophotometry and chromatography to gain knowledge on the biomolecules such as proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, nucleic acids and their functions. In recent years, huge advances are made in understanding […]

What is Zwitter Ion and Isoelectric point

Amino acids have at lease two ionizable groups, i.e., -COOH and -NH2+, of which the former dissociates more easily than the latter. at physiological pH (7.3), the carboxyl group exists in ionized form whereas the amino group remains undissociated and thus retains a positive charge. This doubly charged molecule of amino acid containing a negative […]

Physio Chemical Properties of Amino acids? (Guide)

Amino acids are basically building blocks of proteins. This chapter includes the Physio chemical properties of Amino acids. Before going to the properties of amino acids, we should brush back the amino acids basic points. What is an Amino acids? Amino acids are biological organic molecules containing both an amino group(s) and a carboxyl groups(s). […]

Titration Curve of Glycine : The zwitter ionic changes

Glycine is optically inactive, simplest amino acid because which have no asymmetric carbon atom. Acid-Base titration involves the gradual addition (or) removal of protons. It has three different stages when the Glycine undergoes acid-base titration. What is Amino acid and its Structural Chemistry? Color reactions of Amino acids What is Zwitter Ion and Isoelectric point […]
