Reports on the amino acid composition of human milk vary considerably with respect to concentrations of sulfur amino acids. Often, analyses forego tryptophan determination. A complete analysis of protein and amino acid concentrations was performed on human milk samples (5-10 days postpartum) collected from mothers of preterm (gestations of 25-32 weeks) and term (gestations of > 36 weeks) infants. Careful attention was given to quantitate amino acids such as cysteine and tryptophan, which are… CONTINUE READING
