- Amino Acids Associated with Selected Algal Whole Cell Proteins, Cell Wall Peptides, and Mucopolymers - Dissertation 1972
The primary objectives of this study are to: (1) quantitate the amino acids associated with the whole cell proteins,cell wall peptides and mucopolymers of several Cyano-phycophytan species, in order to determine whether or not blue-green species can be characterized by amino acid patterns. (2) quantitate the amino acids associated with the cell wall peptides of a variety of green, red and euglenoidalgae, in order to determine whether or not broad differences exist between these species. (3)ascertain the susceptibilities o findividual Cyanophycophytan mureins to lysozyme degradation.
