Identification of Biological Molecules Identification of Biological Molecules Presentation Transcript

  • Identification of Biological Molecules ALBIO9700/2006JK
  • Testing for the presence of sugars (Benedict’s test) ALBIO9700/2006JK
  • Testing for the presence of sugars (Benedict’s test) ALBIO9700/2006JK
  • Testing for the presence of sugars ALBIO9700/2006JK
  • Testing for the presence of starch (iodine solution) ALBIO9700/2006JK
  • Testing for the presence of lipids (emulsion test) ALBIO9700/2006JK
  • Sudan III• Tissue that has been ground up is transferred to a test tube containing water and boiled• Oil droplets will escape the tissue and rise to the surface• Add 2 cm3 Sudan III, shake and allow the oil to settle• Oil will be stained red ALBIO9700/2006JK
  • Testing for presence of protein ALBIO9700/2006JK
  • Biuret test• Suitable for soluble proteins• Add equal amount of 1% potassium hydroxide (KOH) to solution• Add a few drops of 1% copper (II) sulphate (CuSO4) solution down the side of test tube• A blue ring at the surface of the solution indicates protein• On shaking, the blue ring disappears and the solution turns purple ALBIO9700/2006JK
  • Millon’s test• For insoluble proteins• 6 drops of Millon’s reagent to a small amount (3 cm3) of solution or suspension of protein and boil for 5 minutes• After cooling, add a few drops of 1% sodium nitrite• If protein is present, a brick-red precipitate appears on the surface ALBIO9700/2006JK
