RNase A (1 mM) was incubated with glucose (0.4 M) at 37°C for up to 14 days in phosphate buffer (0.2 M, pH 7.4), digested with trypsin and analysed by LC-MS. The major sites of fructoselysine formation were Lys1, Lys7, Lys37 and Lys41. Three of these sites (Lys7, Lys37 and Lys41) were also the major sites of N-(carboxymethyl)lysine formation.
