Experiments

Experiments

  • A.A can be characterized qualitatively by using several dyes that will react with certain groups of the A.A.

  • Seven Tests:

  • Ninhydrin 4. Xanthoproteic 7. Sakaguchi

  • Biuret5. Hopkin’s- Cole

  • Millon’s6. Sulfur


1 ninhydrin test

1. Ninhydrin Test

  • For amino acids containing a free NH2 & free COOH.

  • Reaction with ninhydrin to produce a colored product.

  • When NH2 is attached to α-C on the amino acid’s carbon chain, the amino group’s N is part of a blue-purple product.

  • Amino acids that have N-H (a secondary amino group (e.g. proline) also react with ninhydrin, but they yield a yellow product.

Reaction of A.A with Ninhydrin


Procedure

Procedure..

1. Label 6 cleaned, drained test tubes with the names of the following solutions: 2 % glycine, 1 % tyrosine, 2 % proline, 2 % casein, 2 % gelatin, 2 % albumin.

2. Add 15 drops of each solution in the corresponding test tube.

  • To each of the test tubes add 5 drops of 0.5 % ninhydrin reagent

    solution.

  • Place the test tubes into the boiling-water bath for 5 minutes.

    Remove the test tubes from the water bath and place then in a test tube rack.

    Record your observations!


2 biuret

2. Biuret

  • For detecting peptide bonds (hence peptides or proteins)..

  • How it works?

  • The copper atoms of Biuret solution (CuSO4 ) in a basic environment will react with peptide bonds (-CO ---NH) to form a chelate of a deep violet color, indicating the presence of proteins.

  • A light pink color indicates the presence of peptides..

Procedure1

Procedure..

1. To 1 ml of a solution containing protein add 4 ml of a biuret reagent.

2. Mix well, then let to stand at RT for about 30 min.

3. Record your observations!


3 sulfur test

3. Sulfur Test

  • For the detection of sulfur-containing amino acids such as cysteine.

  • Is done by converting S to an inorganic sulfide ( S2-) through cleavage by a base.

  • When the resulting solution is combined with lead acetate (CH3COOPb), a black precipitate of lead sulfide is formed.

Cysteine


Procedure2

Procedure..

1. Place 1 ml of 2% casein, 2% egg albumin, 2% peptone, 2% gelatine and 0.1 M cysteine into separate, labeled test tubes.

2. Add 2 ml of 10 % aqueous sodium hydroxide. Add 5 drops of 10 % lead acetate solution.

3. Stopper the tubes and shake them. Remove the stoppers and heat in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Cool and record the results.


7 sakaguchi

7. Sakaguchi

  • For detection of the amino acid containing the guanidinium group (e.g. arginine).

  • In basic conditions, α- naphthol and sodium hypobromite/chlorite react with the guanidinium group to form red orange complexes.

Arginine


Procedure3

Procedure

  • Add 1 ml of 3 N NaOH solution to 1 ml of the protein solution, followed by addition of 0.5 ml of 0.1 % α- naphthol solution, and a few drops of 2 % hypobromite solution (NaOBr).

    2. The formation of a red color indicates the presence of a guanidinium group in the compound under examination.
