biochemistry question please write clearly and explain all steps4. (10 pts) The compound guanidinium chloride (GndCl) is one of the chaotropic agents that can be used to denature a protein when it is added to a protein water mixture. This is a little confusing because GndCl looks like it could participate well in H-bonding. The protonated form is shown; all N and C atoms are in the same plane. O C NH2 To understand how GndCl works a) Draw the local dipole moments involving C and N, including the directions, for each of the polarized bonds on the drawing of the molecule. b) Do you think GndCl will be more polar or less polar than H20? Whyl? c) Do you think GndcI will interact better or poorer with the non-polar amino acid side chains in the protein? d) Will GndCl cause the ΔΗ for the collapse of an unfolded protein to a folded structure to be larger or smaller? Why?
