structure of the original peptide

(See attached file for full problem description)

Enzyme-catalyzed hydrolysis of a peptide yields mixtures of smaller peptides. Give the structure of the original peptide which yielded these parts following chymotrypsin and trypsin hydrolysis.

Solution Preview

The enzyme chymotrypsin cleaves peptides on the C-terminal side of hydrophobic residues such as phenylalanine and tyrosine. Look up the structures of these in order to see that they are quite hydrophobic. They both contain the ...
