Acetaldehyde is the first oxidation product of ethanol in vivo. Lysine residues in proteins such as hemoglobin have been implicated as target structures for acetaldehyde adducts resulting from ethanol consumption. Although the presence of both stable and unstable acetaldehyde-hemoglobin adducts has been established, the structural characterization of the adducts has received relatively little attention. As a model for such adduct formation, we studied the peptide pentalysine in vitro… CONTINUE READING
