  • 21. Quantitative Analysis of Proteins 21
  • 22. Kjeldahl methodThe Kjeldahl method was developed in 1883by a brewer called Johann Kjeldahl A food is digested with a strong acid sothat it releases nitrogen which can bedetermined by a suitable titration technique.The amount of protein present is thencalculated from the nitrogen concentration ofthe food 22

  • 25. Methods using UV-visible spectroscopyThese methods use either the natural abilityof proteins to absorb (or scatter) light in theUV-visible region of the electromagneticspectrum, or they chemically or physicallymodify proteins to make them absorb (orscatter) light in this region Principles Direct measurement at 280nm Biuret Method Lowry Method Dye binding methods Turbimetric method 25
  • 26. Direct measurement at 280nmTryptophan and tyrosine absorb ultravioletlight strongly at 280 nmThe tryptophan and tyrosine content ofmany proteins remains fairly constant, and sothe absorbance of protein solutions at 280nmcan be used to determine their concentration Biuret MethodA violet-purplish color is produced whencupric ions (Cu2+) interact with peptidebonds under alkaline conditions The absorbance is read at 540 nm 26
  • 27. Lowry MethodThe Lowry method combines the Biuretreagent with another reagent (the Folin-Ciocalteu phenol reagent) which reactswith tyrosine and tryptophan residues inproteins. This gives a bluish color which can be readsomewhere between 500 - 750 nm depending onthe sensitivity required 27

  • 29. Amino Acid Analysis Amino acid analysis is used to determinethe amino acid composition of proteins.  A protein sample is first hydrolyzed(e.g. using a strong acid) to release the aminoacids, which are then separated usingchromatography, e.g., ion exchange, affinityor absorption chromatography. 29

  • 43. Water / Moisture Determination Karl Fischer MethodThe Water Determination Test (Karl FischerMethod) is designed to determine watercontent in substances, utilizing thequantitative reaction of water with iodine andsulfur dioxide in the presence of a loweralcohol such as methanol and an organicbase such as pyridine, as shown in thefollowing formulaeH2O+I2+SO2 + 3 C5H5N 2(C5H5N +H) I- + C5H5N + SO3C5H5N + SO3 + CH3OH (C5H5N +H) O- SO2 +OCH3 43
  • 44. 1.Volumetric titrationIodine required for reaction with water ispreviously dissolved in water determinationTS, and water content is determined bymeasuring the amount of iodine consumed asa result of reaction with water in a sample Volume(ml) of TS for Water determination consumed X f (mg/ml)Water = X 100 Weight of sample (mg) 44
  • 45. 2. Coulometric Titration 2. Coulometric TitrationFirst, iodine is produced by electrolysis ofthe reagent containing iodide ion, and then,the water content in a sample is determinedby measuring the quantity of electricity whichis required for the electrolysis (i.e., for theproduction of iodine), based on thequantitative reaction of the generated iodinewith water. 45
