Conformational Studies of Glutenin Polymers from Different Wheat Cultivars by Circular Dichroism Spectroscopy
Abstract:A strong correlation between baking quality and size distribution of wheat glutenin polymers exists, so we have utilized Circular Dichroism Spectroscopy in presence of some denaturant agents to study glutenin polymers. Spectra indicated that all the changes induced by urea and by sodium dodecyl sulphate followed a multi-step transition process.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
