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.
