Solution

When globular proteins undergo coagulation or precipitation to give fibrous proteins, due to coagulation the native shape of the protein is destroyed and biological activity is lost. That is why coagulated proteins so formed are called denaturated proteins.

During denaturation, secondary and tertiary structures are destroyed but the primary structure remains intact.
