Unformatted text preview: 766 AMINO ACIDS, PEPTIDES, AND PROTEINS. NUCLEIC ACIDS 27.29 Bradykinin is a nonapeptide but contains only five different amino acids. Three of the amino acid residues are proline, two are arginine, and two are phenylalanine. Five peaks will appear on the strip chart after amino acid analysis of bradykinin.

Leucine is isolated as its 2,4dinitrophenyl (DNP) derivative, but glycine and serine are isolated as the free amino acids.

NO2 O2N Ser Asparagine and glutamine each contain an amide function in their side chain. Under the conditions of peptide bond hydrolysis that characterize amino acid analysis, the side-chain amide is also hydrolyzed, giving ammonia.
