Amino acid sequence of a trypsin-chymotrypsin inhibitor, B-III, of peanut (Arachis hypogaea).


The amino acid sequence of peanut trypsin-chymotrypsin inhibitor, B-III, was determined by conventional methods. The limited proteolysis of B-III with trypsin indicated the reactive sites of B-III for trypsin to be Arg(10)-Arg(11) and Arg(38)-Ser(39). Comparison of the established sequence of B-III with those of other Bowman-Birk type double-headed protease… (More)
