Title: Isolation, purification and characterization of Protease Inhibitor from Moringa oleifera Lam.
Author: Bijina, B; Dr. Chandrasekaran, M
Abstract: Protease inhibitors are one of the most important tools of nature for regulating the proteolytic activity of their target proteases. They are synthesized in biological systems and they play a critical role in controlling a number of diverse physiological functions. The current investigation focused on the isolation, purification and characterization of a novel protease inhibitor from Moringa oleifera. The results obtained during the course of study opens new perspectives for the utilization of protease inhibitor from Moringa oleifera for various pharmaceutical, agricultural and food industries. The biological and physicochemical properties exhibited by the novel protease inhibitor from Moringa oleifera clearly testify its suitability for the development as a drug for application in pharmaceutical industries such as anticoagulant agent or biocontrol agent in agriculture and even as a food preservant. There is a scope for further research on the structure elucidation and protein engineering towards a wide range of further applications. Detailed structure/function analysis of these proteins is important to facilitate their use in genetic engineering for various applications.
