  • Q:

    Soluble proteins like blood serum albumin can help buffer pH levels because:

     

    A

    the acidic and basic amino acid residues can accept or donate protons in solution as needed.

    B

    soluble proteins can precipitate when the pH is altered.

    C

    proteins can hydrolize in the presence of acids or bases which neutralizes their effect.

    D

    proteins can activate other acid- or base-producing proteins to alter the pH.
