These peptides directly influence numerous biological processes evoking behavioral, gastrointestinal, hormonal, immunological, neurological, and nutritional responses. Antimicrobial milk proteins, such as lactoferrin, were described in early literature1. Casecidin, obtained by chymosin digestion of casein at neutral pH, was among the first defense peptides actually purified and exhibited activity in vitro against Staphylococcus, Sarcina, Bacillus subtilis, Diplococcus pneumoniae, and Streptococcus pyogenes2. Milk also contains peptides that exhibit antifungal properties like lactoferrin or its peptides ex. Structural Characteristics Milk peptides have a high content of negative charges they will efficiently bind divalent cations with the formation of soluble complexes. The high content of negative charges makes these phosphopeptides resistant to further hydrolysis.

Structural Characteristics Milk peptides have a high content of negative charges they will efficiently bind divalent cations with the formation of soluble complexes. The high content of negative charges makes these phosphopeptides resistant to further hydrolysis. Milk caseins are easily degradable proteins due to their random coil structure.

The whey proteins, b-lactoglobulin, a-lactalbumin and lactoferrin also give rise to peptides with mineral binding abilities. These proteins are regarded as more resistant to enzymatic attack and undergo hydrolysis much more slowly than the caseins4. Mode of action Milk peptides may affect mucosal immunity possibly by guiding local immunity until it develops its full functionality5.

Several milk peptides have been shown to have antihypertensive effects in animal and in clinical studies. The most studied mechanism underlying the antihypertensive effects of milk peptides is inhibition of angiotensin-converting enzyme6.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition ACE. The RAS is an important regulator of blood pressure and fluid and electrolyte balance. Angiotensin II is a strong vasoconstrictor that induces release of aldosterone and therefore increases sodium concentration and furthers the blood pressure. ACE inhibitors have 2 effects on the renin-angiotensin system. They reduce production of angiotensin II and inhibit the degradation of the vasodilator.

Several milk peptides have opioid-like activities are derived from casein, called exorphins, and those derived from casein are called casoxins. These peptides have been shown to lower blood pressure. Because the antihypertensive effect of lactorphin was completely prevented by an opioid receptor antagonist naloxone, it has been proposed that the antihypertensive effect is mediated via opioid receptors.

Functions Antimicrobial Peptides - Milk contains a variety of components that provide immunological protection and facilitate the development of neonatal immune competence6.

Lactoferrin is another milk bioactive compound with nutritional and health promoting properties; it modulates the microbial intestinal environment, displays anti-microbial activity against various pathogens and stimulates the establishment of beneficial microflora.

Antithrombotic Peptides- Antithrombotic peptides are present in milk, involved in milk clotting, defined by the interaction of? This complex formation results in an increased solubility which, in turn, provides enhanced absorption of calcium across the distal small intestines of animals fed casein diets in comparison to control animals fed soy-based diets7.

Immunomodulatory Peptides - Immunomodulatory milk peptides affect both the immune system and cell proliferation responses. References 1. Iron binding proteins in milk and resistance to E.

Bioactive Peptides in Milk and Dairy Products: A Review

This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Abstract Functionally and physiologically active peptides are produced from several food proteins during gastrointestinal digestion and fermentation of food materials with lactic acid bacteria. Once bioactive peptides BPs are liberated, they exhibit a wide variety of physiological functions in the human body such as gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, immune, endocrine, and nervous systems. These functionalities of the peptides in human health and physiology include antihypertensive, antimicrobial, antioxidative, antithrombotic, opioid, anti-appetizing, immunomodulatory and mineral-binding activities. Most of the bioactivities of milk proteins are latent, being absent or incomplete in the original native protein, but full activities are manifested upon proteolytic digestion to release and activate encrypted bioactive peptides from the original protein.
