N- terminal sequencing: Edman Degrada1on •  Pehr Edman: two- step CHEMICAL process •  Labels and removes ONLY the amino- terminal residue from a pep@de •  (1) Basic step: Phenylisothiocyanate (PCT) added under mildly alkaline condi1ons •  Reacts with amino- terminal aa to form a PCT adduct •  (2) Acidic step: Anhydrous trifluoroace@c acid cleaves pep1de bond next to PCT adduct •  Isolate and iden1fy the PCT adduct amino acid away from the shortened pep1de •  Repeat 26 You need to know the steps here, but not the mechanism (ie flow of electrons) Edman Degrada1on: N- terminal sequencing The am...
