A single-column high-performance liquid chromatographic separation of 4-N,N-dimethylaminoazobenzene 4'-thiohydantoin amino acid derivatives, generated during polypeptide sequence analysis by the 4-N,N-dimethylaminoazobenzene 4'-isothiocyanate/phenylisothiocyanate double coupling technique, is described. Recovery of the serine and threonine derivatives was improved by substituting boron trifluoride-diethyl etherate for trifluoroacetic acid in the thiazolinone cleavage reactions. Residues, including the S-carboxymethyl derivative of cysteine, were assigned after a single injection and a cycle time of 30 min. Quantities of 4-N,N-dimethylaminoazobenzene 4'-thiohydantoin amino acid derivatives as low as 100 fmol were detected. Interference of sequencing artefacts with residue assignment was avoided. This technique allows simultaneous manual sequencing of several proteins or peptides at the level of a few picomoles.
