Biochem/physiol Actions

N-Hexanoyl-L-homoserine lactone is a member of N-acyl-homoserine lactone family. N-Acylhomoserine lactones (AHL) regulate gene expression in gram-negative bacteria, such as Echerichia and Salmonella, and are involved in quorum sensing, cell to cell communication among bacteria; for reviews see. Bacterial intercellular communication has become a target for the development of new anti-virulence drugs, and a research focus for the prevention of biofilm formation.

Various bioactive peptides are continuously being identified from casein hydrolysates. In this work, a novel angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE)-inhibitory (ACEI) peptide, NMAINPSKENLCSTFCK, derived from the αs2-casein fragment residues 25-41, was screened and identified by UPLC-ESI-Q-TOF-MS/MS from tryptic casein hydrolysate. The

Non-adherence to antihypertensives is a cause of 'pseudo-treatment-resistant' hypertension. To determine whether monitoring plasma amlodipine concentrations and inhibition of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) can be adjunct adherence tools. Patients with hypertension who were prescribed enalapril and amlodipine were enrolled. Blood pressures
