New approaches to the analysis of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) data relating to proteins undergoing irreversible thermal denaturation have been demonstrated. The experimental approaches include obtaining a set of DSC curves at various scanning rates and protein concentrations, and also reheating experiments. The mathematical methods of analysis include construction of a linear anamorphosis and simultaneous fitting of a theoretical expression for the dependence of the excess heat capacity on temperature to a set of experimental DSC curves. Different kinetic models are discussed: the one-step irreversible model, the model including two consecutive irreversible steps, the Lumry and Eyring model with a fast equilibrating first step, and the whole kinetic Lumry and Eyring model.
