The amino acid sequence of a 31 residue peptide from bovine prothrombin has been determined. This peptide has been shown to contain the vitamin K dependent modification required for Ca2+ binding and the modified amino acid, γ carboxyglutamic acid. The peptide was shown to correspond to residues 12 to 42 of prothrombin.
