β-Cyanoalanine, an inhibitor of rat liver cystathionase
Abstract β-Cyanoalanine, the neurotoxin naturally present in various species of Vicia (vetch), is shown to be an effective inhibitor in vitro of rat liver cystathionase. Inhibition was reversibleExpand
The sequence of amino acids in oxytocin, with a proposal for the structure of oxytocin.
A tentative structure for oxytocin is proposed on the basis of data derived from utilization of the Edman degradation and from the cleavage with bromine water. Expand
