Scholarcy highlights

  • Cofactor-containing peptide has been obtained in high yield from bovine serum amine oxidase
  • Analysis of the peptide by mass spectrometry, ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy, and proton nuclear magnetic resonance leads to the identification of X as 6-hydroxydopa
  • 6-hydroxydopa has been implicated in neurotoxicity, the data presented suggest that this compound has a functional role at an enzyme active site
