Abstract

Sulphur is usually incorporated with the sulphur-containing amino acids cystine, cysteine and methionine, and only a small proportion is taken up as sulphate (Buddecke 1974). The oxidation into sulphate is taking place in the liver. It is either used for synthesis as “active sulphate” (sulphatide, chondroitin sulphate, keratin sul¬phate, heparin) or reaches the circulation as anorganic sulphate. It is then found as amino acid peptide sulphate, as ester sulphate or anorganic sulphate.
