The amino acid sequence of pancreatic spasmolytic polypeptide.


The sequence of porcine pancreatic spasmolytic polypeptide has been established by a variety of techniques including manual as well as automatic sequencing of fragments resulting from the cleavage of reduced and S-carboxymethylated pancreatic spasmolytic polypeptide with trypsin, chymotrypsin, clostripain, cyanogen bromide and formic acid. The N- and C-terminal sequences were established using pyroglutamate amino-peptidase and carboxypeptidase A, respectively. Pancreatic spasmolytic polypeptide contains 106 amino acid residues in a single chain with seven S-S bridges and a pyroglutamyl blocked N-terminal. The alignment of the sequences representing amino acids 14-49 and 63-98 shows pair-wise identical amino acid residues in 18 out of 36 positions, indicating that these two "domains" have been derived from a common gene.
