|Abstract:||In an attempt to determine the influence of polluted water on the
amino acid content of Mytilus edulis, muscle tissue of specimens from a clean area
was compared with that of specimens from polluted areas and with that of specimens
transferred from clean to polluted water. Analyses were made by means of
two-dimensional paper chromatography. The amino acids present under one type
of environmental condition but not under another were cystine, cysteine, methionine,
taurine/asparagine, and proline.
