The hydrolysate of egg albumin contains cysteine (Mirsky and Anson, 1935). Denatured but unhydrolyzed egg albumin gives the nltroprusside test for SH (Hefter, 1907) and reduces the weak oxidizing agents glutathione and cystine, which presumably can oxidize only SH groups (Hopkins, 1925; Mirsky and Anson, 1935). No SH groups have hitherto been detected in native egg albumin. Native egg albumin does not give the nltroprusside test (Hefter, 1907). It does not reduce ferricyanide even at pH 9.6… Expand
