Several naturally occurring amino compounds, structurally related to pyrrolidine, were reacted with nitrite in heated, weakly acidic, aqueous systems and the amount of NPYR formed was measured. The study included amines, free amino acids and different proline-containing peptides. The yields of NPYR formed from pyrrolidine, putrescine, agmatine, spermidine, spermine, proline, ornithine and arginine with nitrite in the pH range 6.6 to 4.0 were determined. The lowest yields were obtained from the… CONTINUE READING
