Six amino acid sequences for trypsin inhibitors isolated from squash, summer squash, zucchini, and cucumber seeds were determined. All these inhibitors along with the two previously sequenced squash inhibitors (1) form the squash inhibitor family. The striking characteristic of the family is that its member inhibitors are very small (29-32 residues, 3 disulfide bridges). The association equilibrium constants with bovine beta trypsin for 6 squash family inhibitors were determined and range from… CONTINUE READING
