I'm looking for a formula which gives instruction how to calculate an extinction
coefficient for a protein with known sequence for quantification by uv-measurements.
I found an empirical formula in a paper of Scopes et al.,1973 but its just valid for
proteins with a mean phe-content of 2.8 . They give a reference how to take into
account varrying aa-sequences, but I cannot get this paper:
Sober et al.

If anyone knows about this or other articles dealing with the mentioned subject,
please mail me an answer.
Thank you very much,
