Primary amino acid sequence problem Average amino acid residue MW~110g/mol CHEM 370 Determine the primary amino acid sequence of a peptide given the following information. 1. Composition of the peptide is Asp Cys Gly Lys Met Pro Ser Tyr 2. Molecular weight of the original peptide is ~1000 Da 3. Treatment of the original peptide with carboxypeptidase A and B generates NO free amino acid. 4. Treatment of the original peptide with Edman reagent yields a PTH-Ser 5. Chymotrypsin digestion of the original peptide yields a tetrapeptide and a pentapeptide 6. Treatment of the tetrapeptide from step 5 with Edman reagent yields a PTH-Cys 7. The pentapeptide from step 5 is found to have a free sulfhydryl group at the residue 2 amino acids from the C-terminus. 8. Trypsin digestion of the original peptide yields a tripeptide and a hexapeptide 9. The tripeptide from the step 8 contains an amino acid with an acidic R-group 10. Cyanogen bromide digestion of the hexapeptide from step 8 yields a dipeptide and a tetrapeptide

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
