An egg yolk protein by-product following ethanol extraction of phospholipids (YP) was hydrolyzed with pepsin to produce and identify novel peptides that revealed antioxidant, ACE inhibitory and antidiabetic (α-glucosidase and DPP-IV inhibitory) activities. The peptic hydrolysate of YP was fractionated by ion-exchange chromatography and reversed-phase(More)
The aim of this study was to (i) examine how enzymatic hydrolysis with a non-commercially available proteinase of fig-leaf gourd fruit (Cucurbita ficifolia) increased the use value of egg white protein preparations, generated as byproducts in the industrial process of lysozyme and cystatin isolation from egg white, and (ii) evaluate the inhibition of(More)
UNLABELLED In the present study angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptides were isolated from egg-yolk protein preparation (YP). Enzymatic hydrolysis conducted using unconventional enzyme from Cucurbita ficifolia (dose: 1000 U/mg of hydrolyzed YP (E/S (w/w)=1:7.52)) was employed to obtain protein hydrolysates. The 4-h hydrolysate exhibited a(More)
A series of novel cyclic ureidopeptides, analogues of dermorphine/deltorphine tetrapeptide, were synthesized by solid phase peptide synthesis and/or in solution. The antinociceptive activity of N-substituted amides 1-10 was evaluated using hot-plate and tail-flick tests. Analogue 1 showed significant, stronger than morphine, antinociceptive effect after(More)
Hydrogens connected to α-carbon (α-C) of amino acid residues are usually resistant to hydrogen-deuterium exchange (HDX) unless reaction conditions promote racemization. Although N-methylglycine (sarcosine) residue has been found in biologically active peptide such as cyclosporine, to the best of our knowledge, the HDX of α-C protons of this residue was not(More)
A TAT47-57 peptide was modified on the N-terminus by elongation with a 2,3-diaminopropionic acid residue and then by coupling of two histidine residues on its N-atoms. This branched peptide could bind to Ni under physiological conditions as a 1 : 1 complex. We demonstrated that the complex was quantitatively taken up by human fibrosarcoma cells, in contrast(More)
Improving the sensitivity of detection and fragmentation of peptides to provide reliable sequencing of peptides is an important goal of mass spectrometric analysis. Peptides derivatized by bicyclic quaternary ammonium ionization tags: 1-azabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (ABCO) or 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (DABCO), are characterized by an increased detection(More)
Two mononuclear Cu(II) complexes with tetrapeptides incorporating a L-2,3-diaminopropionic acid (dap) branching unit are reported to undergo PCET and catalyse water oxidation. C-terminal His extension of dap (L = 2GH) instead of Gly (L = 3G) lowers the pKa for Cu(III)H-2L (9.36 vs. 9.98) and improves the TOF at pH 11 (53 vs. 24 s(-1)).
Isobaric labeling quantification of peptides has become a method of choice for mass spectrometry-based proteomics studies. However, despite of wide variety of commercially available isobaric tags, none of the currently available methods offers significant improvement of sensitivity of detection during MS experiment. Recently, many strategies were applied to(More)
Three new branched peptides, namely, H-Gly-Dap(H-Gly)-Gly-NH2 (3G), H-His-Dap(H-His)-Gly-NH2 (2HG), and H-Gly-Dap(H-Gly)-His-NH2 (2GH), where Dap stands for the 2,3-diaminopropionic acid residue, were synthesized by solid phase procedures. Because of the junction at Dap these peptides have three available pending arms for metal chelation. The complex(More)
