Abstract

Abstract Proteases are enzymes that act in the hydrolysis of proteins and have several industrial applications. Moreover, proteases have gained prominence as enzymes for the generation of bioactive peptides from the hydrolysis of different protein sources. Milk is the most studied protein source to obtain peptides due to its nutritional and physiological effects and has been studied as complementary therapeutic approaches for the cancer treatment, interacting specifically with cancer cells, consequently fewer side effects. The ability of Eupenicillium javanicum metalloprotease to generate whey-derived peptides with antioxidant activity has already been demonstrated. For this reason, we thus hypothesized that whey-derived peptides from Eupenicillium javanicum metalloprotease hydrolysis could also have a potential against melanoma cell lines. In this study, B16F10 melanoma cells were treated for 72 h with whey-derived peptides and the effects on cell viability were determined. Moreover, the protein profiles of the treated and nontreated cells were compared in proteomic assay and mass spectrometry analyzes. Whey-derived peptides impaired about 62% cell viability, and proteomic approach associated this behavior to modulate proteins involved in proliferation, energy, apoptosis, metastatic and malignancy rates. This study describes the relevance of microbial enzymes in generation of whey-derived peptides with biological activity against melanoma cells. (AU)
