Abstract


A review on the bioactive peptides described so far in storage proteins, mainly milk proteins, has been carried out. Bioactive peptides are small amino acid sequences inactives in the native protein, but that can be liberated after hydrolysis of these proteins and exert different functions. Among the main one are bioactive peptides with opioid activity, antagonistic opioid, immunomodulatory, antithrombotic, ion transporting or antihypertensive. The possible presence of these peptides in other protein source, mainly oilseed plants and their possible use is discussed.
