The Correlation Between Doolittle's Values And Solubility

Great Essays
Introduction
The properties of amino acids, the components used to create proteins, vary as determined by their r-group; some r-groups are hydrophobic while others are hydrophilic. Engleman’s and Kyte and Doolittle’s scales quantify the degree of this hydrophobicity. Through this experiment the experimenters hoped to gain an understanding of the correlation between Engleman’s and Kyte and Doolittle’s values and solubility, or the amount of amino acid dissolved, as well as how hydrogen bonds affect solubility of amino acids.
Methods
Glycine, alanine, valine, leucine, and isoleucine, were placed into weigh boats then measured in grams. Scoopulas were used to place small increments of amino acids, into test tubes where they were then shaken for

This can be derived from a tool which outputted a directional and non-directional probability of less than 0.0001. This value is significant as it is below five percent thus allowing the rejectection the null hypothesis that there is no relation between the measurements and the amount of moles dissolved. Kyte and Doolittle’s measures provide a better correlation and a better linear regression. This was determined by analyzing the value of R2; the closer the R2 value is to one the more accurate the regression is. The linear regression expressing the relationship between Kyte and Doolittle’s measurements and the moles dissolved had an R2 value of 0.6154. The linear regression used to express the correlation between Engleman’s measurements and the moles dissolved yielded and R2 value of 0.5834. 0. 0.6154 is closer to one than 0. 5834; thus meaning that the regression between Kyte and Doolitle’s data and the amount of moles dissolved is the most …show more content…
This downward trend is represented in the formula y= -0.0022x+0.0067 with an R2 value of 0.5034. The correlation shown is negative. Glycine is the data represented in the furthest left data grouping, then alanine, followed by valine, leucine, and then finally isoleucine. Figure 2: The figure above expresses the prevalence of a linear relation between the amount of moles dissolved and Kyte and Doolittle’s scale. This downward trend is represented in the formula y= -0.001x+0.0045 with an R2 value of 0.6154. The correlation shown is negative. Glycine is the data represented in the furthest left data grouping, then alanine, followed by valine, leucine, and then finally isoleucine.

Figure 3: The figure above shows the configuration of each of the amino acids that were analyzed for solubility and hydrophobicity.

    The pKa was determined to be 7.21 while the average Ka was 6.17*10^-8. The Ka % error was -21.91 which means that the yield was lower than expected compared to the literature value which was given to be 7.9*10^-8. (See equation 4) Results and Discussion In this lab the experimental pKa value was determined to be 7.21 and the average Ka was determined to be 6.17x10^-8. This value shows that through he dissociation of the hydronium in the solution it made the solution more acidic than a basic solution. The previously determined Ka gave a percent error of -21.91%, this error could be due to several reasons including, but limited too: calibrating the ph electrode correctly or possibly spilling the solutions when transferring from bottle to bottle.…

    As indicated in Table 1, the maximum wavelength was at 625 nm at 1.063 absorbance. The absorbance values from cuvettes #1 through #7 were recorded at 625 nm to create the concentration curve Figure 2. The concentration curve is conducted at the maximum wavelength to produce the optimal results for the diluted concentrations of Fast Green.The purpose of the graph is to locate the unknown; Beer-Lamberts law, the concentration is proportional to the absorbance. The slope of the trend line was y = 71.333x + 0.0014 and the length travelled through the sample was 1 cm, the absorbance at the unknown substance was 0.112. After calculating using Beer-Lamberts law, the unknown concentration was 0.001550474 mg/ml.…

    2.An impurity has the effect of lowering the freezing point of a solvent by changing the structure of the solvent. Making it so when the impurity is added the solvent will not be able to crystalize and remains liquid. 3.NaCl was the additive that lowered the freezing point the most in the experiment. 4.C12H22O11 was the additive that lowered the freezing point the least in the experiment. 5.C12H22O11 has the smallest freezing point per moles and AlCl3*6H20 has the greatest freezing point per mole.…

    The average of volume of NaOH used in the calculations was calculated as the average of the two best values which increases accuracy. The final pH of the titration can be altered if excess indicator is a added. Experiment 2: To prepare the solution of KIO3, the mass that must be added in 250 mL of distilled water must be calculated as shown; 1 mol of KIO3 is contain in 214.00g 0.005 mol of KIO3 1.07g Since the potassium iodate is only 99% pure 99% 1.07g 100% 1.081g Hence, mass of KIO3 used= 1.081g Apart from KIO3 and KI, sulfuric acid is also present in the conical flask, in excess, to provide H+ ions to increase the rate of reaction. 2.3 Conclusion After having done both experiment in the laboratory, we can conclude that he titration method relying on visual detection of the end point for quite precise determination of the unknown…

    2. In this study, the WHC found (8.06, 8.61, 9.67, 10.65 gram of H2O/gram of sample) and OHC (3.0, 2.92, 3.42 and 3.91 gram of oil/gram of sample) to the respective temperatures of (25 ℃, 40 ℃, 60 ℃ and 80 ℃). The average swelling capacity of dried laver at 25 ℃ was found to be (0.69–0.75 mL/g of sample). Table 5 showed gelling properties of the dried laver powder in the present study. A lower least gelling capacity suggests a better capacity for the material to gel formation.…

    The table 4.6 shows the result of SEM Model Fit. Measuring the Chi-square is the first step to indicates wheter the model fits the data or indicates the different between the estimated population covariance and the sample covariance. The smaller value of Chi-square means the value are more better. As seen from the table above the Chi-quare value is 0.000 which means the value is significant. The value also means that the difference of estimated population covariance and the sample covariance is very low, or can be concluded as equal.…

    Using 1H NMR the meta-substituted product can identity and differentiated from para- and ortho- substitution. For example, the chemical shifting at 3.99ppm showed the methyl group of the methyl benzoate. Using the coupling constant would also explain that there is an existence of methyl m-nitrobenzoate between 7.2 and 8.9ppm. As shown in the table result, the coupling constant of the pare appear to be smaller, for example, it is about 72

    The final pH of the solution was estimated, after the completion of process and it was observed that the final pH of the solution decreased with FC and increased with alum. At optimum pH, the CB removal was 73.13 and 67.19 % with FC and alum, respectively. The corresponding COD removal was 64.13 and 55.68 % with FC and alum, respectively. With FC and alum dosing, the maxima CB and COD removals resulted in the pH range 5–6. Results also showed that percentage reductions decreased with increasing pH (>6) with minimum reduction occurring at pH 8 for both coagulants tested, as can be seen in Fig.…
