Paper Abstract

Near-infrared (NIR) excited FT-Raman spectra were measured for intact, modified, and denatured lysozyme in solid states. The following conclusions could be reached from the Raman measurements. (1) FT-Raman spectrum of lysozyme treated at 90 degree(s)C and 10000 kPa is very close to that of the intact protein; only a slight shift of amide I band is observed. (2) Heat denaturation is clearly detected in the Raman spectrum for the protein treated at 120 degree(s)C; the Raman spectral changes suggest that most (alpha) -helix structure change into random coil structure upon the heat denaturation at 120 degree(s)C. (3) FT-Raman spectrum of lysozyme modified by glucose is close to that of intact lysozyme, indicating that the modification does not cause a marked secondary structure change. (4) The FT-Raman spectrum of the modified lysozyme by glucose treated at 120 degree(s)C and 15000 kPa is somewhat different in the amide I and III regions from that of the denatured lysozyme, suggesting that secondary structural changes caused by the heat denaturation are different from each other between the two denatured proteins.
