Answer to Question #70282 in Biochemistry for A.K

Question #70282
Which interactions do you think would be impacted if a protein was placed in very salty sea water? Why?
Expert's answer
Intramolecular interactions will be impacted (van der Waals forces, hydrophobic interactions, hydrogen bonds). Chaotropic agent, like NaCl, in high concentrations can destabilize the protein, which may result in protein denaturation.
