Lysine: arginine ratio of a protein influences cholesterol metabolism. Part 1--Studies on sesame protein having low lysine: arginine ratio.

The effect of globulin fraction with a lysine: arginine (lys:arg) ratio 0.67, isolated from sesame (Sesamum Indicum) seeds on cholesterol metabolism was studied in rats fed cholesterol free and cholesterol containing diet and compared with casein (lys:arg ratio-2.0). Rats fed sesame seed globulin showed significantly lower concentrations of cholesterol in… CONTINUE READING
