The amino acid sequence and copper(II)-binding properties of peptide (1-24) of bovine serum albumin.


1. The amino acid sequence of peptide (1-24) obtained from limited peptic digestion of bovine serum albumin has been determined from characterization of its tryptic and chymotryptic peptides. The 3 histidyl residues have been shown to occupy positions 3,9, and 18. 2. Hydrogen ion titration of this peptide with and without copper ions indicates that at… (More)
