Abstract

The peptidic fractions that inhibited angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) were separated from the peptic digests of 2 microalgae, Chlorella vulgaris and Spirulina platensis, by ion exchange chromatography and gel filtration. Oral administration of peptidic fractions into spontaneously hypertensive rats at 200 mg/kg of body weight resulted in marked antihypertensive effects. Further separation of the peptidic fractions by ODS high-performance liquid chromatography furnished the following active peptides: Ile-Val-Val-Glu (inhibitory against ACE with an IC(50) of 315.3 microM), Ala-Phe-Leu (63.8 microM), Phe-Ala-Leu (26.3 microM), Ala-Glu-Leu (57.1 microM), and Val-Val-Pro-Pro-Ala (79.5 microM) from C. vulgaris; Ile-Ala-Glu (34.7 microM), Phe-Ala-Leu, Ala-Glu-Leu, Ile-Ala-Pro-Gly (11.4 microM), and Val-Ala-Phe (35.8 microM) from S. platensis.
