Abstract

The chemical nature of a boron carrier in an aqueous solution plays an importnat role in its metabolism. The charge state and interaction of a compound can be determined by zone electrophoresis. We investigated the chemical state of p-boronophenylalanine (BPA), its related amino acids and p-boronophenylserine (BPS) using a “three-spot method” which was developed by Kitaoka1.
