More than 50% of the world population is infected with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). Potential anti-adhesive peptides from corn protein hydrolysate were developed using in vitro methodologies to prevent Helicobacter pylori infection. To obtain anti-adhesive peptides against Helicobacter pylori, corn gluten meal (CGM) was hydrolyzed by neutrase, and the hydrolysate (CPHN) was purified by using Superdex peptide gel filtration, Q anion exchange and Mono Q anion exchange. Then, sequences of peptides were identified by Nano-LC-MS/MS, and the structural and functional properties of the identified peptides were characterized. Three novel peptides Pro-Tyr-Ala-Glu-Tyr (PYAEY, PY5), Ile-Ile-Pro-Gln-Cys-Ser (IIPQCS, II6) and Thr-Ile-Ile-Pro-Gln (TIIPQ, TI5) were identified, respectively. PY5 exhibited the best anti-adhesive activity among the three novel peptides, and its anti-adhesive activity was 40.75 ± 0.72% at 4 mg/mL. Meanwhile, PY5 also possessed significant 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging capacity and excellent 2,2′-azino-bis (3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) radical scavenging capacity, with IC50...
