Examples of Teaching with Demonstrations
Building A Protein part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a hands-on activity to assess the students understanding of peptide and disulfide bonds formed during protein synthesis. Students demonstrate the process of dehydration synthesis by combining amino acids through peptide bonds creating molecules of water, and one protein amino acid strand. It can also be used to assess students understanding of the process of translation.
