Two anionic trypsins (A and B) were purified to homogeneity from yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacores) spleen by a series of column chromatographies including Sephacryl S-200, Sephadex G-50 and DEAE-cellulose. Purity was increased to 70.6- and 91.5-fold with approximately 2.8% and 15.6% yield for trypsin A and B, respectively. The apparent molecular weight of(More)
Antioxidant activities of gelatin hydrolysates from blacktip shark skin prepared using papaya latex enzyme with different degrees of hydrolysis (DHs: 10%, 20%, 30% and 40%) were evaluated. All antioxidant activity indices of hydrolysates increased with increasing DH (P<0.05). When gelatin hydrolysate with 40%DH was determined for its pH and thermal(More)
Changes in composition and functional properties of proteins during fermentation of Nham, a Thai-fermented sausage, were studied. An alkaline-soluble fraction constituted a major protein component of Nham. The amount of each protein fraction in Nham varied, depending on the fermentation time. As fermentation proceeded, the progressive decrease in(More)
Fifteen strains of red-pigmented, strictly aerobic, coccoid, extremely halophilic archaea were isolated from fish sauce (nam-pla) produced in Thailand. They grew optimally at 37 degrees C, pH 6-8 and in the presence of 20-30 % (w/v) NaCl. The DNA G+C contents of the isolates were 60.0-61.8 mol%. They had MK-8(H2) as a major menaquinone component and(More)
A novel strain, designated TP2-8(T), was isolated from fermented fish (pla-ra) in Thailand. It stained Gram-positive and the cells were aerobic, endospore-forming rods. The strain grew at pH 6-8 (optimum pH 7), 15-55 degrees C (optimum 37 degrees C) and 1-22 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum 5-10 %). It contained meso-diaminopimelic in the cell-wall peptidoglycan. MK-7(More)
Hydrolysates from yellow stripe trevally meat with 15% degree of hydrolysis (DH) obtained using Alcalase (HA) and Flavourzyme (HF) following pH-stat method were characterized. Both hydrolysates, HA and HF, contained glutamic acid and glutamine as the major amino acids, while glycine was the dominant amino acid in fish flesh. Hydrolysates were also rich in(More)
A Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, moderately halophilic bacterium, strain ND1-1(T), was isolated from fermented fish (pla-ra) in Thailand. The cells were curved rods, motile and non-endospore-forming. The novel strain grew optimally at 37 degrees C, at pH 8 and in the presence of 9-10 % (w/v) NaCl. The predominant respiratory lipoquinone was Q-8.(More)
Trypsin from tongol tuna (Thunnus tonggol) spleen was purified to 402-fold by ammonium sulfate precipitation, followed by a series of chromatographic separations. The molecular mass of trypsin was estimated to be 24 kDa by size-exclusion chromatography and sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE). Trypsin appearing as a single(More)
The use of Flavourzyme as a processing aid for the production of Mungoong, an extract paste from the cephalothorax of white shrimp, and its effect on biological activities were investigated. Flavourzyme increased the yield of Mungoong. Mungoong prepared from raw cephalothorax with the addition of 0.15% or 0.30% (w/w) Flavourzyme showed higher yields than(More)
A predominant, heat-activated proteinase in muscle extract of arrowtooth flounder (Atheresthes stomias) was purified to 55-fold by heat treatment, followed by a series of chromatographic separations. The apparent molecular mass of the purified enzyme was 27 kDa by size exclusion chromatography and sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.(More)
