Canola protein hydrolysates were prepared using commercial enzymes, namely Alcalase, an endo-peptidase and Flavourzyme with both endo- and exo-peptidase activities. The hydrolysates so prepared were effective as antioxidants in model systems, mainly by scavenging of free radicals and acting as reducing agents. This effect was concentration-dependent and(More)
Topologically, platelet factor-4 kinocidins consist of distinct N-terminal extended, C-terminal helical, and interposing gamma-core structural domains. The C-terminal alpha-helices autonomously confer direct microbicidal activity, and the synthetic antimicrobial peptide RP-1 is modeled upon these domains. In this study, the structure of RP-1 was assessed(More)
