Abstract

Recently we have reported on the isolation of a mixture of trypsin isoinhibitors from snails (Helix pomatia) having broad inhibitory specificities [1-3]. The inhibitors were found to be secreted into the mucus of the snail [2]. Three homogeneous isoinhibitors B, E, and G have already been characterized [3]. We now have purified two other isoinhibitors H and K from the natural mixture I and wish to report on the amino acid sequence of the isoinhibitor K, the main component of the mixture.
