Stellin B, a protamine fromAcipenser stellatus, has been subjected to thermolysin hydrolysis. Eight peptides have been isolated by chromatography on CM-Sephadex, and their structures have been determined by dansylation and by hydrolysis with carboxypeptidases A and B and with trypsin. From the results obtained, the complete amino acid sequence of stellin B has been established.


Amino Acid Composition Protamine Alkyl Ester Complete Amino Acid Sequence Dansyl Chloride
