Amino Acid Analysis - Cystine and Cysteine ​​Analysis (Enzymatic and Spectrophotometric)

Amino acid analyzes are performed to determine and characterize protein concentration, to determine the absorption coefficient, to detect all free amino acids, including asparagine and glutamine, and to detect total amino acids, including cysteine, tryptophan, and hydroxyproline.

While performing amino acid analyzes in laboratories, an optical density measurement is carried out and protein content and molar ratio analysis are determined using high performance reverse phase liquid chromatography (HPLC) method. This process is combined with UV spectrophotometer to determine the absorption coefficient.

Cysteine ​​is one of the more than twenty amino acids that make up the structure of proteins. Cystine is the form of two cysteine ​​molecules or residues bonded to each other by disulfide bonding.

Proteins are water-lost polymers of amino acids. All amino acid residues are attached to the adjacent amino acid residues by a specific bond. The term residue herein refers to the loss of water of one amino acid when it binds to another.

Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins and, exceptions, all proteins are made up of more than twenty amino acids. In nature, there are more amino acids than 300. Amino acids are present in proteins in different numbers and sequences and cause the formation of thousands of kinds of proteins with different structures and functions.

Spectrophotometer devices are used in laboratories to determine the amount of macromolecules in a solution. Enzyme measurements are laboratory methods for measuring enzyme activity. Spectrophotometric measurements are performed to see how much light the reaction solution absorbs to monitor the course of the reaction. Ultraviolet light is used in these measurements.

In the laboratories, cysteine ​​and cysteine ​​analyzes are carried out by enzymatic and spectrophotometric methods among amino acid analyzes within the scope of chemical tests and the standards prepared by domestic and foreign institutions are followed in these studies.
