Abstract : The non-protein amino acids and related compounds of rat liver mitochondria have been analyzed by automatic ion exchange chromatography. Twentyseven ninhydrin positive peaks were obtained. The identity of these chromatographic peaks is discussed. Mitochondria frozen at -20 degrees for 24 hours showed no change in the free amino acid composition; however, a fourfold increase in the free peptide content was observed. Storage of fresh mitochondria at 0 degrees for 6 days resulted in a sevenfold increase in the free amino acid content with a fifteenfold increase in the free peptide content. (Author)
