Abstract
Bovine serum albumin (BSA) solutions (2.5 %, PH 7.2) under heat treatment can result in structural changes. Some of the α-helices are transformed at 67°C to random coils resulting in an increased rotation angle. With subsequent heating, the transformed random coils may once again transform to non-native β-sheets and restore the optical rotation angle. These two states are all reversible. However, when the heating temperature goes up to 69°C the denatured BSA starts to transform into a rigid network and becomes an irreversible state. The reversible and irreversible temperatures of BSA were determined and discussed.
