Abstract

Ripened and unripened nendran, rasthali, poovan, robusta, bontha and safed velchi bananas were investigated for inhibition against angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) using Hip-His-Leu as substrate. The inhibition of ACE by different ripened banana cultivars was much more than that of unripened banana cultivars. The ACE inhibitory activity of ripened and unripened poovan was heat stable and stable to extreme acidic pH and alkaline pH. The ACE inhibitory activity of ripened and unripened banana cultivars was reduced to 25% and 33% respectively on dialysis.
