Although D-xylose and D-ribose canl be utilized in respiration (3, 7, 27) or in polysaccharide formation by higher plants, the initial metabolic reactions by which they are introduced into the general metabolic stream have not been firmly established. Several workers (2, 3, 14, 17) have suggested that these aldopentoses are converted to intermediates of the(More)
Thermal stabilization resulting from protein . protein association between two protein inhibitors (coded as 0.19, a dimer, and 0.28, a monomer) from wheat flour and the alpha-amylase from Tenebrio molitor L. (yellow mealworm) larvae was investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (heating rate 10 degrees C/min). Thermograms (plots of heat flow vs.(More)
Synthetic lysinoalanine (LAL) may be a more effective inhibitor of the zinc-containing enzyme carboxypeptidase A than is ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA). The enzyme is also inactivated by alkali-treated, lysinoalanine-containing food proteins such as casein, high-lysine corn protein, lactalbumin, soy protein isolate, and wheat gluten, and by(More)
The heat stabilization resulting from specific association of serine proteases with either of two multiheaded protease inhibitors, chicken ovoinhibitor or lima bean protease inhibitor, was determined at pH 6.7 in a differential scanning calorimeter. The 2:1 complex of either bovine alpha-chymotrypsin or subtilisin BPN' with ovoinhibitor showed two major(More)

Proteins with actual or potential antinutrient or toxicant activity found in foodstuffs include (1) enzyme inhibitors, especially those specific for serine proteinases and alpha-amylases, and (2) lectins (hemagglutinins). These inhibitors and lectins must be inactivated during processing or food preparation, usually by heat, to avoid possible undesirable(More)
Dissociation of mixed trypsin (bovine plus porcine trypsin) complexes with chicken ovoinhibitor was used to investigate the nonequivalence of the two binding sites for trypsin on the inhibitor. Previous work has shown that 1 mol of trypsin dissociates much more rapidly than the 2nd from unmixed trypsin complexes, those containing 2 mol of one kind of(More)
Colorimetric determination of tryptophan in intact proteins by the acidic ninhydrin method of Gaitonde & Dovey (1970) gives high apparent tryptophan contents for proteins having high tyrosine/tryptophan ratios. Correction for this interference by tyrosine can be achieved by plotting the ratio of observed to expected tryptophan content as a function of(More)
