Abstract

The amount of low molecular weight amino acids and peptides measured in the form amino acids released by hydrolysis was found to be very low in malignant tissues and cell lines compared to normal tissues and cell lines. The ratios of acid soluble proteins to these low molecular weight compounds were statistically different in normal and malignant cells. The difference may reflect faster growth, greater membrane permeability or other aspects of the malignant process itself.
