The intramolecular dehydratation of phenyl thiocarbamyl amino acid to the corresponding thiohydantoin and the reverse hydrolytic reaction are specifically and separatelycatalyzed by trypsin at two different pH values when l-Arg derivatives are concerned. These substrates disclose the ability of trypsin to catalyze unexpected synthetic and hydrolytic reactions. © 1980.
