Summary

The probability coefficients for finding fragments including identical amino acid sequences in the structures of peptide hormones and kinins have been calculated.

It has been shown that common fragments of the type of proline or valine-basic amino acid-acidic amino acid or glycine are characteristic only for structures of individual groups of peptide hormones and kinins, being rarely found in the primary structures of proteins.
