Confusion now hath made his masterpiece Macbeth II iii seventy two Whence and what are these execrable form? Paradise misplaced Ib 1 681 Confusion worse confounded Paradise misplaced Ib 1 995 while the manuscript for the 1st a part of this e-book was once proposed, it was once expected that the dialogue of the complete box of protein se­ quencing may be lined in one quantity - from purification and characterization of the protein via fragmentation by way of chemical or enzymic potential and, ultimately, to reassembly of the pointed out person peptides into the reconstructed overall series. It quickly turned glaring that this could no longer be attainable. whereas the cause used to be to limit the disclose of approaches simply to that details concerned about "hands on" rainy chemistry, it turned obvious thorough presentation will require, moreover, a dialogue of yes instrumental and extra theoretical ways no longer integrated within the first quantity. additionally, the whole realizing of the sector of protein sequencing has complex considerably because the inception of this e-book. the aim of the 1st quantity was once to supply sensible details in adequate element to allow the researcher to adopt the particular sequencing strategies in his personal laboratory.

Example text

During this time the O-acylurea intermediate of the side-chain carboxyl can isomerize to the inactive N-acylurea (Fig. 4). However, the environment at the C-terminal carboxyl is unique in that azlactone formation is possible. Addition of the amino resin to the azlactone results in a peptide bound specifically at the C-terminus. Unfortunately the yields of peptide linkage by this and other versions of the carbodiimide attachment procedure are frequently very low and unpredictable. The most likely reason for the low yields is N-acylurea formation at the C-terminus, which competes with the desired reactions and inactivates the peptide.

3. Reactions of carbodiimide-activated carboxyl groups In the case of Asp-Gly bonds, some cyclic imide may be formed as noted with carbonyldiimidazole. A variety of carbodiimide coupling procedures has been described. The simplest involves adding an excess of N-dimethylaminopropyl-N'-ethyl carbodiimide to a mixture of the unblocked peptide and resin in dimethylformamide-water (246, 389). In this case the great excess of resin amino groups over peptide amino groups apparently prevents polymerization of the peptide.

Enzymatic Removal of PCA Residues Pyrrolidone carboxylyl residues can be preferentially cleaved from the termini of peptides and proteins by the enzyme pyrrolidone carboxylyl peptidase (originally called pyrrolidonyl peptidase). The enzyme was first isolated from a selected strain of Pseudomonas fZuorescens (120), but it can be prepared from a variety of bacterial and other sources (20, 121, 422, 423). , Strain No. 25289), but most of the comments also seem to apply to the enzyme isolated from other sources (119).
