Strategies of Biochemical Characterization of Hormonal Peptides

  • Joachim Spiess

Abstract

In the last 7 years, we have characterized a series of novel hormonal peptides exhibiting hypophysiotropic actions by complete amino acid sequence analysis [1–14, 29]. The size of these peptides varied from 9-134 amino acid residues.
