Protein acts as buffer due to which property?
|D||Amphipathic (amphoteric in nature)|
“Buffering action of plasma proteins →The serum proteins, like other proteins are amphoteric and thus can combine with acids or bases. In acidic pH, NH group acts as base and can accept a proton (H+) and thus is converted to NH3+ and in alkaline pH, COOH group acts as acid and can donate a proton and thus have COO-.
