A bifunctional inhibitor of proteinase and α-amylase from local varieties of corn kernels was isolated and characterized. Its amylolytic and proteolytic inhibiting activities in high-lysine local varieties of corn were determined.

Key words

corn bifunctional inhibitor amylolytic and proteolytic activities high-lysine variety
