A method for determination of amino acid composition of proteins separated by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and transferred to polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) membranes is described. A single blotted band containing 50 to 200 pmoles of protein was cut out and submitted to acid hydrolysis with HCl followed by derivatization with phenylisothiocyanate. The amino acid derivatives were separated by reverse phase high-performance liquid chromatography. Bovine serum albumin, lysozyme, myoglobin, ovalbumin, soybean trypsin inhibitor and carbonic anhydrase were analyzed; the results revealed a good correspondence with reported values. This can be considered an analytical method to determine the amino acid composition of samples from microquantities of protein mixtures, particularly in those cases in which SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is the most suitable separation system.
