Abstract

The effect of alkali treatment on the isomerization of amino acids was investigated. The 100 × D/(D+ L) values of amino acids from peptide increased with increase in the number of constituent amino acid residues. Furthermore, the N-terminal amino acid of a dipeptide was isomerized to a greater extent than the C-terminal residue.
