Homework Help: Biochemistry

Posted by Andrew on Monday, April 6, 2009 at 8:11pm.

Have two quick questions...

Why does denatured protein precipitate? (when heated, why does it give that poached egg look? I know heat denatures protein, but why does it look like that? something to do with bonds?)

And also... why does protein denature in heat?

Thanks!
