Sreenu Barla1, Dowluru Svgk Kaladhar2,* Narasinga Rao V3
Plants produce complecx set of biological components that acts as active principles. A complete study of protein components provides an understanding about the complex network and the changes of functions within a system. The plant system contains both useful and harmful sources that can act as medicinal sources. The plant proteins are using from the ancient times but the principle understanding about these sources are arised from the modern times. The plant seed and testa in some Cucurbitaceae members as the medicinal sources in the form of protease inhibitors has been provided in the present study. The plant proteins isolated from seed coat is having good antiproliferative and antifungal properties. As the seeds containing testa is using as the edible sources, there is multiple interlinks in the control of various metabolic diseases like cancer. The protease inhibitors are also having good antifungal properties.
