Acetylation of the lysines of bovine lens alpha A-crystallin has been examined after 0-48-hr incubations of whole alpha-crystallins in 100 mM aspirin. The alpha A-crystallins were isolated after the incubation, proteolytically digested into peptides which were separated by reversed phase HPLC and analysed by mass spectrometry. For the reaction conditions used in this investigation, acetylated lysyl residues were the principal products. The extent of acetylation was quantified from the… CONTINUE READING
