Implications of 3-methylhistidine titres of actin and myosin in determining meat protein
Johnson, Stuart Keith (1988) Implications of 3-methylhistidine titres of actin and myosin in determining meat protein. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The widespread use of nan4meat protein in meat products necessitates a method for the robust, unequivocal quantification of meat in foods. Protein-bound levels of the co- or post-translationally modified amino acid, 3- methylhistidine, virtually unique to the myofibrillar proteins actin and myosin, have previously been proposed as such an index, determination being by high-performance liquid chromatography of acid stable fluorescamine derivatives.
