Inhibition of Proteolytic Enzymes from Pseudomonas fluorescens ATCC 948 and Angiotensin I-Converting Enzyme by Peptides from Zein, Hordein, and Gluten Hydrolysates
Abstract:Peptides inhibitory to partially purified endopeptidase and crude proteinase from Pseudomonas fluorescens ATCC 948 were isolated from tryptic hydrolysates of zein and hordein by reversed-phase fast protein liquid chromatography and identified by sequencing. The sequences are Ser-Ala-Tyr-Pro-Gly-Gln-Ile-Thr-Ser-Asn and Gln-Val-Ser-Leu-Asn-Ser-Gly-Tyr-Tyr for peptides from zein and hordein, respectively. Inhibitions of >85% and from >50 to >85% were determined on endopeptidase and proteinase by peptides from zein and hordein. Ki values ranged from 4 to 32 μM. The same peptides also showed inhibition of the angiotensin I-converting enzyme. The concentrations of peptides providing 50% inhibition of angiotensin I-converting enzyme were 7 and 23 μM for the decapeptide and nonapeptide, respectively. Other fractions containing peptides with less inhibitory activity were detected in the zein as well as in the gluten tryptic digests.
