Modeling Protein Domain Function
Baker, William P.; Jones, Carleton "Buck"; Hull, Elizabeth
Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, v44 n2 p43-47 Sum 2007
This simple but effective laboratory exercise helps students understand the concept of protein domain function. They use foam beads, Styrofoam craft balls, and pipe cleaners to explore how domains within protein active sites interact to form a functional protein. The activity allows students to gain content mastery and an understanding of the vital role of proteins within cells. The exercise also enables teachers to assess student performance on several levels. (Contains 2 figures.)
