  • Abstract The solubility of testosterone in buffered solutions of 18 l -amino acids was determined. In solutions of l -tryptophan, l -tyrosine, l -phenylalanine, l -histidine, l -arginine, and l -lysine a significant increase was obtained above that observed in buffer alone at the corresponding ionic strength. The largest effect was obtained with l -tryptophan. A slight increase in solubility was noted in solutions of l -methionine and l -proline. With the other ten amino acids no increase was… CONTINUE READING
