Enzymes extract proteins from rice bran efficiently.

Heating decreases the solubility of proteins through denaturation denaturation, term used to describe the loss of native, higher-order structure of protein molecules in solution. Most globular proteins exhibit complicated three-dimensional folding described as secondary, tertiary, and quarternary structures. and complexing with other components. New efficient ways to extract these proteins could add value to rice bran.
Enzyme-aided approaches could preserve the functionality of proteins while improving extraction efficiency. Enzymatic techniques require gentle conditions and extract proteins that are otherwise insoluble. Scientists at the University of Arkansas The University of Arkansas strives to be known as a "nationally competitive, student-centered research university serving Arkansas and the world." The school recently completed its "Campaign for the 21st Century," in which the university raised more than $1 billion for the school, used evaluated the role of selected enzymes in hydrolyzing proteins. They characterized peptides from the rice bran matrix.
The investigators studied five enzymes, including a xylanase, a fungal protease, proteinase proteinase /pro·tein·ase/ (pro´ten-as?) endopeptidase.

congenital erythropoietic porphyria and a umamizyme protease. Rice bran proteins were extracted using aqueous solutions with these enzymes at their optimum conditions. The protein contents of the extracts were determined, and extracted proteins were characterized using gel electrophoresis.
There was a 128% increase in the amount of protein extracted with proteinase A (10,000 U/100 g rice bran) treatment, compared to the control. There were 15%, 5%, 39% and 62 % increases in the amount of protein extracted using xylanase (3,000,000 U), fungal protease (500,000 U), Econase CEP (100,000 U) and Umamizyme (70 U), respectively, in 100 g of rice bran.
Gel electrophoresis indicated that proteinase A-treated proteins showed major bands at 55, 46, 27 and 20 kDa. Umamizyme protease-treated proteins showed major bands at around 35 and 12 kDa. Fungal protease-extracted proteins showed major bands at 38 and 28 kDa. Econase CEP- and xylanase-treated proteins showed bands below 15 kDa.
The results suggest that enzyme-aided procedures extracted more proteins than the controls, with proteinase A being most effective. Enzymes produced different polypeptide segments not observed with the controls, suggesting that the release of these peptides from the rice bran matrix occurred through enzymatic hydrolysis hydrolysis (hīdrŏl`ĭsĭs), chemical reaction of a compound with water, usually resulting in the formation of one or more new compounds. .
