Determination of Amino Acid Sequence in a Peptide Lab Activity
Biology Educational Materials
Biochemistry Learning Activities
Tie Science History to Science Technique
Follow the path that led biochemist Frederick Sanger to receive two Nobel Prizes with this exciting lab. Everything (except a hairdryer) is included for students to determine amino acid content, composition, and position of terminal groups of the tripeptide arginylglycylphenylalanine from a protein hydrolysate. The activity includes an instructor’s manual, an assessment manual, and student data sheets for four setups to do four different exercises each.
