Abstract
The calculated values obtained from the standardization columns

for conversion of optical density total to amount of amimo acid are

listed in Table I. The values for leuciue and isoleucine are the

average of the color yields of both amino acids, for both compounds

were found to be slightly contaminated with each other. The value listed for beta-alaniine was calculated from information given by Moore

and Stein (113) which described the color yield es being about half that of most of the other amino acids. Half the average color yield of the

most closely agreeing replicates, aspartic acid, threonine, serine, and valine, was taken as an approximation.
