Abstract

Two peptides, thymopoietins I and II, which are T-cell differentiating hormones of thymus were purified and characterized by Goldstein,1) using an in vitro neuromscular assay. Each peptide contains 49 amino acid residues and both peptides were shown to be related and to differ by only three amino acid residues.2)
