The major proteins of lupin seed : Characterisation and molecular properties for use as functional and nutraceutical ingredients
Implication of an Outer Surface Lipoprotein in Adhesion of Bifidobacterium bifidum to Caco-2 Cells
BopA is the first protein described to date to be directly involved in the adhesion of bifidobacteria to Caco-2 cells and to show immunomodulatory activity.
Manipulation of the napin primary structure alters its packaging and deposition in transgenic tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) seeds
Detailed immunolocalisation studies indicate that the insertion of the peptide sequences has a significant effect on the distribution of the napin proteins within the tobacco seed protein bodies.

In vitro approach provided a platform to study potential dietary agents to alleviate hyperglycaemia damage and suggested that grape skin phenolics could be effective even if the higher mass proanthocyanidins are bound to the food matrix.
Maize development and grain quality are differentially affected by mycorrhizal fungi and a growth-promoting pseudomonad in the field
Overall, results showed that the bacterial strain and the AM fungi promoted maize growth cultivated in field conditions and differentially affected the grain nutritional content.
The α′ Subunit from Soybean 7S Globulin Lowers Plasma Lipids and Upregulates Liver β-VLDL Receptors in Rats Fed a Hypercholesterolemic Diet
The results represent the first in vivo evidence of both the plasma lipid-lowering properties and the upregulation of liver beta-VLDL receptors induced by the soybean alpha' subunit.
Two-dimensional electrophoresis and western-blotting analyses with anti Ara h 3 basic subunit IgG evidence the cross-reacting polypeptides of Arachis hypogaea, Glycine max, and Lupinus albus seed…
The present findings show the potentiality of 2D electrophoresis in the identification of food allergens and open the way to the traceability of the new cross-reacting proteins in the food chain.
Molecular nutraceutics as a mean to investigate the positive effects of legume seed proteins on human health
Conglutin gamma, a lupin seed protein, binds insulin in vitro and reduces plasma glucose levels of hyperglycemic rats.
