Quantification of azo-coupled lysine in azo proteins by amino acid analysis.


Hydrochloric acid hydrolysis of azo proteins in which lysine residues are azo coupled, results in conversion of modified lysines to alpha-amino-epsilon-hydroxy caproic acid plus alpha-amino-epsilon-chloro caproic acid. The latter can interfere with the determination of tyrosine by amino acid analysis. This potential problem can be avoided either by making… (More)
