abstract

  • Nonlimit chemical cleavage at tryptophan residues of protein labeled at the amino terminus afforded a simple procedure for generating specific fragments and for mapping tryptophan positions. A comparison of the matrix (M) and nucleocapsid (N) proteins of four members of the Vesiculovirus group by this procedure suggests considerable conservation of tryptophan number and location in the four serotypes examined.
