remarks - In comparison with RNase (Spectrum B.5) the decrease in Cys and Met content as well as the appearance of Trp residues produce the expected changes at m/z 34, 48, 117 and 131. It should be noted, however, that the marked differences in the percentage contribution of some aliphatic amino acid residues, e.g. Leu, lie, Val and Ala produce far less clearly defined differences in the spectrum. The peak at m/z 64 (S02+- and/or CH3S0H+") may point to slight oxidation of sulphur-containing amino acid residues.
