NOVEL AND RAPID ASSAY PROCEDURES WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR THE DETERMINATION OF TOTAL PROTEIN QUALITY OF FOODS. FOR TOTAL PROTEIN, A SPECIFIC ELECTRODE WILL BE DEVELOPED THAT WILL EFFECT A (5MIN) HYDROLYSIS OF PROTEIN TO L-TYROSINE, F FOLLOWED BY A SPECIFIC L-TYROSINE ASSAY. FOR PROTEIN Q QUALITY, SPECIFIC L-LYSINE ANDL-METHIONINE ELECTRODES WILL BE USED TO DEVELOP A RAPID CPER ASSAY.
