Novel isoforms of proteinaceous α-amylase inhibitor (α-AI) from seed extract of Albizia lebbeck

Proteinaceous inhibitors of digestive α-amylase occur naturally in leguminous seeds and find applications in agriculture and clinical studies. We have detected and isolated eight novel α-amylase inhibitor isoforms in the seed extract of Albizia lebbeck. They are designated as AL-αAI-1 to AL-αAI-8. These isoforms specifically inhibit human salivary α-amylase… CONTINUE READING
