Screening of Russian medicinal and edible plant extracts for angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE I) inhibitory activity

The angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE I) inhibitory activities of 108 aqueous ethanol extracts obtained from Russian plants were evaluated in vitro. Activity was assessed with a two-stage colorimetric assay using N-[3-(2-furyl)acryloyl]-L-phenylalanyl-glycyl-glycine (FA-PGG) as a substrate and 2,4,6-trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid (TNBS) as a coloring… CONTINUE READING
