Abstract Bradykinin is a bioactive hormone involved in a variety of physiological processes. In various solvents, this peptide adopts β-turn structures. The C-terminal turn is a structural feature for the receptor affinity of agonists and antagonists while the N-terminal turn might be important for antagonistic activities. Polyphenols like dimeric proanthocyanidin B3 interact with the peptide. Thus to investigate the effects of polyphenols on bradykinin activity and structure, we studied the… Expand
Role of peptide primary sequence in polyphenol-protein recognition: an example with neurotensin.
NMR data and molecular modeling showed that interaction occurred with the three polyphenols involving hydrophobic stacking and hydrogen bonds, and the peptide primary sequence plays a role in the specificity of complex formation. Expand
Conformations of Prolyl-Peptide Bonds in the Bradykinin 1-5 Fragment in Solution and in the Gas Phase.
The conformational space of the N-terminal 1-5 fragment of bradykinin (BK[1-5](2+)) in the gas phase is explored by combining drift tube ion mobility, cold-ion spectroscopy, and first-principles simulations to gain insight into the relation between the disordered state and the environment. Expand
Polyphenol-bradykinin interaction: Role in pain sensation
Abstract It can be deduced from this concise review that bradykinin and polyphenols could have a double role in health. Nevertheless, if their bioavailability is improved by their encapsulation,Expand
3D NMR structure of a complex between the amyloid beta peptide (1-40) and the polyphenol ε-viniferin glucoside: implications in Alzheimer's disease.
For the full length peptide Aβ1-40, the binding sites observed could explain the EVG inhibitory effect on fibrillization and thus prevent amyloidogenic neurotoxicity. Expand
Inhibitory activity of stilbenes on Alzheimer’s β-amyloid fibrils in vitro
Abstract Polymerization of the amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) has been identified as one of the major characteristics of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Thus, finding molecules to prevent the aggregation of AβExpand
The Polyphenol Piceid Destabilizes Preformed Amyloid Fibrils and Oligomers In Vitro: Hypothesis on Possible Molecular Mechanisms
It is shown that piceid, a polyphenol of the stilbene family, destabilized fibrils and oligomers to give back monomers that are not neurotoxic molecules. Expand


Calcium-binding properties and molecular organization of bradykinin A solution 1H-NMR study.
A role for the metal was hypothesized in the process of conformational selection from the free to the receptor-bound state of bradykinin and a molecular model of the 1 : 1 metal-complex was obtained. Expand
Threonine6-bradykinin: structural characterization in the presence of micelles by nuclear magnetic resonance and distance geometry.
The structural results support the hypothesis of the determining role of the C-terminal conformation for biological activity and can provide an explanation of the different activities observed for bradykinin and [Thr6]-bradykinIn. Expand
First observation of solution structures of bradykinin-penta-O-galloyl-D-glucopyranose complexes as determined by NMR and simulated annealing.
A three-dimensional structure of complexes was determined using 2D-NMR experiments and molecular modeling to understand how the polyphenol-protein interaction arises and shows that the interaction is a complex phenomenon where several parameters are involved. Expand
NMR and Simulated Annealing Investigations of Bradykinin in Presence of Polyphenols
The goal of this work was to study the effects of tannins on the peptide structure by NMR investigations and molecular modeling and show that in the presence of catechin, the peptides conformation is not affected and is in a random coil structure. Expand
Nmr and molecular modeling investigations of the neuropeptide bradykinin in three different solvent systems: DMSO, 9 : 1 dioxane/water, and in the presence of 7.4 mM lyso phosphatidylcholine micelles
The results suggest that the β‐turn at the C‐terminus of bradykinin is an important secondary structural feature for receptor recognition and binding. Expand
Multiple conformations of the proline-rich protein/epigallocatechin gallate complex determined by time-averaged nuclear Overhauser effects.

Abstract Three peptides, B-10148 (Lys−1-Lys0-Arg1-Pro2-Hyp3-Gly4-Igl5-Ser6-DF5F7-Oic8; where Hyp is ira<<i-4-hydroxyproline, Igl is a-(2-indanyl)glycine, F5F is 2,3,4,5,6-pentafluo-rophenylalanineExpand
Multiple interactions between polyphenols and a salivary proline-rich protein repeat result in complexation and precipitation.
A model is proposed in which multiple polyphenol/polyphenol and poly phenol/PRP interactions act cooperatively to achieve precipitation, and indicates that the larger and more complex polyphenols interact more strongly with the PRP fragment. Expand
