Comments P.53 bottom paragraph: "Kerr and Godin [ref 79], using the dinitrophenylation method of Sanger [ref 80], have identified valine, threonine, glycine, alanine, serine, glutamic acid, and aspartic acid as N-terminal amino acids in human hair. Quantitative data by Speakman [primary source 64] and Hahnel [primary source 142] for N-terminal amino acids of human hair, using this same procedure, are summarized in Table 2-7."
