Abstract

Whey proteins mixed with salal fruits extract (0% - 20% w/w) were hydrolyzed with Pronase E from Streptomyces griseus for a period of 8 h. The ACE inhibitory activity of the hydrolysates was highest (IC50: 0.087 mg/mL) for samples fortified with the highest extract concentration (20%). Peptides (>7 amino acids) with documented ACE inhibitory activity (DAQSAPLRVY, ALPMHIR, DKVGINY, LHLPLPL, YPFPGPI, YPFPGPIPN, VYPFPGPIPN) were identified bv LC-MS/MS data analysis using a database search approach. Fluorescence spectra of the whey proteins mixed with salal fruits extract indicates fluorescence quenching for α-lactalbumin. SDS-PAGE analysis suggests that α-lactalbumin is less susceptible to proteolysis when the extract is included in the formula. Data indicate that α-lactalbumin may be interacting with phenolic compounds naturally present in salal fruits. These interactions and the formation of complexes between a-Lac and phenolic compounds may affect the hydrolysis pattern of whey protein and the release of peptides with ACE-inhibitory activity.
