Best Answer

 fibrous proteins and globular proteins

Denaturation of Proteins

When a protein in its native form, is subjected to a change in temperature or change in pH, the hydrogen bond are disturbed. Due to this, globules unfold and helix get uncoiled and protein loses its biological activity. This is called denaturation of protein. During denaturation 2° and 3° structures are destroyed but 1° structures remain intact, e.g., coagulation of egg white on boiling, curdling of milk, etc.
