The aim of this study was to optimize the conditions for the extraction of low-abundance proteins (LAPs) and the removal of abundant proteins (APs; β-conglycinin and glycinin) from soybean meal. Single factor and orthogonal experiments were designed to determine the effects of four factors (isopropanol concentration, total extraction time, ultrasonic power, and ultrasonic time) on protein concentration in isopropanol extracts. Proteins in the isopropanol supernatant and the cold acetone precipitate of isopropanol were identified by sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS). The results showed that the optimal conditions were 50% isopropanol, ultrasonic pretreatment for 15 min at 350 W, and a total extraction time of 1 h. Under these conditions, the protein concentration in the isopropanol extracts reached 0.8081 g/L. Many LAPs were detected, including β-amylase, soybean agglutinin, soybean trypsin inhibitor, fumarylacetoacetase-like, phospholipase D alpha 1-like, oleosin, and even some unknown soybean proteins. The soybean APs (β-conglycinin and glycinin) were not found. The method may be useful for discovering new soybean proteins and extracting enough LAPs of soybean to allow further studies of their physiological effects on animals without the influence of APs.


结论:50%异丙醇,350 W超声15 min,提取1 h是大豆低丰度蛋白提取的最佳条件。提取物含多种低丰度蛋白(油质蛋白、大豆未知蛋白、磷酸酯D和无特征大豆蛋白),且无大豆高丰度蛋白(大豆球蛋白和β-伴大豆球蛋白)。
