Abstract. The activity of pork muscle dipeptidyl peptidases I, II, III, and IV was followed during the processing of Serrano dry-cured ham. The effects of NaCl, pH, and temperature on these enzymes have also been studied for a better understanding of their importance in ham processing. The lysosomal enzymes DPP I and DPP II showed maximal activity at pH around 5.5–6.0, i.e., close to the pH in ham. At low temperatures, only DPP I and DPP IV showed relevant activity. NaCl considerably inhibited… Expand
Oligopeptides hydrolysed by muscle dipeptidyl peptidases can generate angiotensin-I converting enzyme inhibitory dipeptides
Dipeptidyl peptidases (DPP) are a group of enzymes capable to liberate dipeptides from the N-terminal side of longer peptides. Four different DPP activities have been described in skeletal muscle,Expand
Proteolysis, protein oxidation and protease activity in dry‐cured Xuanwei ham during the salting stages
Summary Twenty-four experimental dry-cured Xuanwei hams were salted using a standard method for 90 days. The proteolysis, protein oxidation and protease activities in biceps femoris (BF) andExpand
Studies on time-related changes of dipeptidyl peptidase during processing of Jinhua ham using response surface methodology.
Muscle DPP I may be a key enzyme responsible for the generation of dipeptides in Jinhua ham processing while the effect of DPP IV was possibly very limited. Expand
Degradation of LIM domain-binding protein three during processing of Spanish dry-cured ham.
The aim of this work was to study the degradation of LIM domain binding protein 3 (LDB3), which is located at the Z-lines of the sarcomere, at different times during the Spanish dry-cured ham processing. Expand
Estudio de la generación de péptidos y su caracterización como marcadores de calidad del jamón curado
An extensive proteolysis takes places during the processing of dry-cured ham because of the action of muscle peptidases. The aim of this work was to study the degradation of LIM domain bindingExpand
Free amino acids and bioactive profile of Pastırma during its processing
This study is focused on the characterization of the proteolysis occurred during the processing of Pastırma, a traditional Turkish dry-cured meat product, which is responsible for its finalExpand
Study on endogenous protease and protein degradation of dry-salted Decapterus maruadsi
ABSTRACT Extensive proteolysis and formation of flavor substances occur during the processing of dry-salted fish due to the action of endogenous proteases. This study analyzed the evolution of theExpand
Naturally generated small peptides derived from myofibrillar proteins in Serrano dry-cured ham.
Nine of these peptides originated from myosin light chain I protein, with the loss of dipeptides at the N-terminal position observed in some of them, which suggests that di peptidyl peptidases are involved in the generation of diPEptides, which contribute to thegeneration of the characteristic taste associated with Serrano ham.

Free amino acids and bioactive peptides profile of Pastırma during its processing.
Pastırma represents a good source of natural ACE-inhibitory and antioxidant peptides which might be due to the proteolysis occurred by endogenous enzymes and the contribution of the çemen paste used in production. Expand
Intense degradation of myosin light chain isoforms in Spanish dry-cured ham.
The isolation and tentative identification of 137 fragments from myosin light chain 1 (MLC 1), together with 88 fragments originated from myOSIn light chain 2 (M LC 2), have been achieved for the first time in Spanish dry- cured ham, proving the intense proteolysis experienced by myofibrillar proteins after dry-cured processing.

Dipeptidyl peptidase IV from porcine skeletal muscle: purification and biochemical properties
A contribution of DPP IV action to the total proteolytic activity occurring in postmortem muscle during meat storage and ripening of meat products is feasible and could contribute to flavor generation in those products. Expand
Contribution of muscle aminopeptidases to flavor development in dry-cured ham
Abstract The activity of muscle aminopeptidases (alanyl, arginyl, leucyl and pyroglutamyl aminopeptidases) have been assayed along the processing of dry-cured ham. The generation of free amino acidsExpand
Partial purification and characterisation of dipeptidyl peptidase II from porcine skeletal muscle.
This is the first time that porcine muscle DPP II has been purified and its biochemical characteristics studied, and these results contribute to improve the knowledge in relation with the proteolytic chain and the generation of flavour characteristics in meat products. Expand

Examination of cathepsins B, D, H and L activities in dry-cured hams.
It was confirmed that the cathepsin B and L activities in fresh pork and dry-cured ham were similar by isoelectrofocusing and the presence of the curing salts may be important in stabilising the muscle enzymes during the curing process. Expand
