1. A fragment designated D was isolated from human serum albumin degraded by CNBr. Its properties show that it is made up of the B and C fragments isolated by McMenamy et al. (1971) (J. Biol. Chem., 246, 4744-4750). 2. Reduction of fragment D gives rise to two chains, one of which consists of the second subfragment of reduced fragment B linked to fragment C by an amino acid different from methionine. It thus demonstrates the existence of albumin molecules from which the second methionine residue located between fragments B and C is missing.
