Abstract

Further analyses of the amino acid composition of protein hydrolysates of Neomysis integer has confirmed the importance of glutamic, aspartic, lysine, leucine and arginine (in that descending order) in both ovigerous females and less mature animals. Mesopodopsis slabberi closely resembles Neomysis in its amino acid composition. Sagitta setosa shows considerable similarity to the mysids in its protein amino, acids but alanine replaces leucine in importance. There is a somewhat larger concentration of glycine ( ~ 7%) and of histidine(~ 5%) among the less important amino acids. Despite the low level of protein in Pleurobrachia pileus, the pattern of amino acids shows considerable resemblance to the other planktonic species but glycine occurs in greater concentration than leucine or arginine
