Test Tube 1 The mixture is added to trypsin and a pH buffer of 9.
Test Tube 2 The mixture is added to trypsin and bile.
Test Tube 3 The mixture is added to trypsin and a pH buffer of 3.
7. The three test tubes were placed in an incubator at 37C for one hour. The experimenter observed that the egg white was absent in test tubes 1 and 2, but still present in Test Tube 3.
Complete the following.
a. Describe what happened to the egg white in Test Tubes 1 and Test Tube 2 to make it disappear.
