Enzymatic synthesis and LC, MS and MS-MS characterization of tailored peptides
"Lysine (K), arginine (R) and methionine (M) are the limiting amino acids in the dairy and beef cattle. Nutritional studies have shown that for better milk production and rapid growth of animals the lysine-methionine and arginine-methionine should be supplemented in 3:1 mole ratio. However, supplementation of crystalline amino acids in feed is not very effective, because amino acids in the crystalline form under go extensive microbial degradation in the rumen. By contrast amino acids supplemented as peptides show a greater rumen by-pass and higher availability to the animals. The present study was directed at synthesis and characterization of tailored K-M and R-M oligopeptides as potential amino acid supplements"--Abstract, leaf iii.
