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 booklet used to be proposed, it used to be expected that the dialogue of the full box of protein se quencing should be lined in one quantity - from purification and characterization of the protein via fragmentation by means of chemical or enzymic ability and, eventually, to reassembly of the pointed out person peptides into the reconstructed overall series. It quickly turned obvious that this may now not be attainable. whereas the rationale was once to limit the reveal of methods basically to that details excited about "hands on" rainy chemistry, it turned obvious thorough presentation will require, furthermore, a dialogue of convinced instrumental and extra theoretical methods no longer incorporated within the first quantity. in addition, the complete figuring out of the sector of protein sequencing has complicated substantially because the inception of this publication. the aim of the 1st quantity was once to supply useful details in adequate element to allow the researcher to adopt the particular sequencing techniques in his personal laboratory.

Sequence and BrCN peptides of acyl carrier protein Although solid-phase Edman degradation has been used to obtain continuous sequences for as many as 50 residues (273), 25-30 cycles appears to be the practical limit in peptide sequencing. This being the case, it would seem desirable to generate small peptides containing fewer than 30 amino acids. In general, however, fragmentation with trypsin or chymotrypsin, methods which produce small peptides, is impractical, since the isolation, purification and alignment of large numbers of small peptides is often time-consuming, tedious, and difficult.
Homoserine lactone coupling of peptides In practice the peptide is treated with anhydrous trifluoroacetic acid for 1 h at room temperature, the acid is evaporated, the peptide is neutralized by the addition of triethylamine, and the amino-resin is added. The coupling reaction is carried out in dimethylformamide or a dimethylforrnarnide-water mixture, depending on the solubility of the peptide. If other, nonhomoserine peptides are present, they can be recovered from the resin washings by evaporation of the solvents.
The resin is washed and the carboxyls are coupled using N-dimethylaminopropyl-N'-ethyl carbodiimide (pH 5, 50°, 2 h). The increased attachment yield, compared with the case where no diisothiocyanate was used, was particularly evident in the case of larger peptides such as insulin A-chain, where the yield increased from 46 to 92%. The advantage of this, compared with the usual carbodiimide procedure, is that the a-amino group is protected by linkage to the resin, and the chances of the activated carboxyl reacting with the resin are improved because the peptide is already attached at the N-terminus.
