Hypotensive peptides from milk proteins.
Hypertension is the major controllable risk factor associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) events such as myocardial infarction, stroke, heart failure, and end-stage diabetes. A 5 mm Hg decrease… Expand
Bioactive peptides from marine processing waste and shellfish: A review
Abstract Marine organisms such as fish and shellfish are rich sources of structurally diverse bioactive nitrogenous components. Based on emerging evidence of potential health benefits, these… Expand
Identification of a novel angiotensin‐I‐converting enzyme inhibitory peptide corresponding to a tryptic fragment of bovine β‐lactoglobulin
The angiotensin‐I‐converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory activity of a tryptic digest of bovine β‐lactoglobulin (β‐lg) was investigated. Intact β‐lg essentially did not inhibit ACE while the tryptic… Expand
Phase‐Sensitive X‐Ray Imaging

- 1 July 2000
The basic principles of x‐ray image formation and interpretation in radiography have remained essentially unchanged since Rontgen first discovered x rays over a hundred years ago. The conventional… Expand
Milk protein-derived peptide inhibitors of angiotensin-I-converting enzyme.
Numerous casein and whey protein-derived angiotensin-I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptides/hydrolysates have been identified. Clinical trials in hypertensive animals and humans show that… Expand
Proteinase and exopeptidase hydrolysis of whey protein: Comparison of the TNBS, OPA and pH stat methods for quantification of degree of hydrolysis
Whey protein hydrolysates were generated with Alcalase 2.4L and Debitrase HYW20 which are proteinase and exopeptidase enriched enzyme preparations, respectively. Degree of hydrolysis (DH) values were… Expand
BIOACTIVE PROTEINS, PEPTIDES, AND AMINO ACIDS FROM MACROALGAE 1
Macroalgae are a diverse group of marine organisms that have developed complex and unique metabolic pathways to ensure survival in highly competitive marine environments. As a result, these organisms… Expand
Angiotensin-I-converting enzyme inhibitory activities of gastric and pancreatic proteinase digests of whey proteins
Enzymatic hydrolysates of bovine β-lactoglobulin (β-Lg), α-lactalbumin (α-La) and whey protein concentrate (WPC) were analysed for their angiotensin-I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory activity. The… Expand

Novel angiotensin-I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory activities were detected in synthetic peptides corresponding to sequences of beta-lactoglobulin and alpha-lactalbumin and which are known to… Expand
Extraction of protein from the macroalga Palmaria palmata
Abstract The effect of NaOH and N-acetyl- l -cysteine (NAC) concentration, mass:volume, agitation and extraction temperature on the recovery of alkaline soluble proteins from milled oven-dried… Expand
