Adipogenesis inhibitory peptide was isolated and identified from black soybean (Rhynchosia volubilis Lour.) hydrolysate. An adipogenesis inhibitor was purified using consecutive methods including: ultrafiltration (MWCO; 3 and 10kDa), gel filtration chromatography (Superdex Peptide 10/300 GL column), and reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (microBondapak C(18) column). Also, the adipogenesis inhibition effect of the purified peptide was measured by observation of droplet of 3T3-L1 adipocyte by Oil Red O staining in the highest active fraction in each step. The peptide was shown to inhibit the differentiation of the 3T3-L1 pre-adipocyte, which was confirmed by morphological study. The adipogenesis inhibitory peptide was purified 71.43-fold from black soybean hydrolysate throughout a five-step purification procedure. The adipogenesis inhibitor was identified to be a tripeptide, Ile-Gln-Asn, having an IC(50) value of 0.014 mg protein/ml. Furthermore, the synthetic tripeptide (Ile-Gln-Asn) exhibited the similar adipogenesis effects to the purified peptide. Thus, these results showed the potential anti-obesity effect of the purified peptide through control of adiposity.
