Summary of "Carboxymethylcellulose/pectin inhibiting structural folding of rice proteins via trinary structural interplays."

Developing food components combining materials properties from both proteins and polysaccharides is an intriguing as well as challenging task in food industry. In the present study, we report that by mixing rice proteins (RPs) with carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and pectin at pH 12 prior to neutralization, trinary complexes dispersible in water were formed. Fluorescence, ultraviolet, and circular dichroism spectra revealed that the RPs in the resultant composites remained partially unfolded as a result of interactions with both polysaccharides. Bearing exposed interiors from RPs and hydrophilic moieties from polysaccharides, the trinary composites were quite stable against aggregation as indicated by improved surface charges and weakened hydrophobicity. Additionally, by tuning the
polysaccharide ratios, we obtained nanoscale discs or interlinked ribbons, indicating their potential applications in emulsions or films, respectively. Based on our strategy, the trinary complexes consisting of multi-components can find applications in the futuristic design of functional ingredients in food and numerous other areas.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The anamorphic form of the fungus MAGNAPORTHE GRISEA and the most important pathogen of rice worldwide. It causes rice blast which prevents maturation of the rice grains.

Viral proteins that are components of the mature assembled VIRUS PARTICLES. They may include nucleocapsid core proteins (gag proteins), enzymes packaged within the virus particle (pol proteins), and membrane components (env proteins). These do not include the proteins encoded in the VIRAL GENOME that are produced in infected cells but which are not packaged in the mature virus particle,i.e. the so called non-structural proteins (VIRAL NONSTRUCTURAL PROTEINS).

OIL extracted from the hard outer brown layer of rice bran after the husk has been removed.

Proteins found in the tail sections of DNA and RNA viruses. It is believed that these proteins play a role in directing chain folding and assembly of polypeptide chains.

A group of eukaryotic high-molecular mass heat-shock proteins that represent a subfamily of HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS. Hsp110 proteins prevent protein aggregation and can maintain denatured proteins in folding-competent states.
