Abstract: Antioxidant activity of the peptides derived from proteins of defatted cottonseed kernels and cotton ground oil-cake by their enzymatic hydrolysis with acidic (Asp. niger) and neutral proteinases (Bac. amyloliquefaciens) was studied. Antioxidant activity of the derived peptides depended on the used proteins and enzymes. The peptides derived by using of neutral proteinase possessed higher antioxidant activity, in comparison with the peptides derived by acidic proteinases.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
