Alanine Scanning is able to identify specific amino acid residues responsible for a peptide’s activity. Alanine is used to substitute each residue sequentially.
Substitution of an essential amino acid results in a reduction in peptide activity, with the degree of activity reduction taken as a relative measure of the importance of the amino acid being substituted
