ABSTRACT

Black cumin seeds (Nigella sativa) have been widely used for the treatment and prevention of various diseases. It is a multidimensional herbal medicine known for its high protein quality. This study shows the effect of microwave and oven treatments on the protein quality of black cumin seeds analyzed by SDS-PAGE. Microwave treated samples resulted in high protein yield as compared to oven treated samples. Highest protein yield in microwave treated sample T16 (43.9125 mg/ml) while 0 mg/ml in oven treated samples T10, T11, T12. The best overall results for protein quality, high molecular weight protein bands by SDS- PAGE and enzymatic activity were obtain by samples treated at 50°C for 1, 2 and 3 hr (T1, T2, T3 respectively).

Keywords: Nigella sativa, microwave heating, SDS-PAGE, oven heating, protein analysis, enzymatic activity.
