The proteins of feather become soluble when they are treated with a combination of a disulphide bond-breaking reagent and a protein denaturant. The disulphide bonds of feather keratin have been cleaved by reduction with alkaline thioglycollate (Goddard and Michaelis 1934; Harrap and Woods 1964a), by sulphitolysis (Woodin 1954; Harrap and Woods 1964a) and by oxidation (Harrap and Woods 1964 a). Although detergents (Ward et al. 1946) and dissociating agents such as guanidine and urea have been… CONTINUE READING
