A 26-kDa trypsin inhibitor with an N-terminal sequence resembling storage proteins was purified from moth beans (Phaseolus acutifolius). It dose-dependently inhibited trypsin with an IC50 value of about 0.38 μM. It inhibited [methyl-3H] thymidine incorporation by lymphoma MBL2 cells with an IC50 value of 20 μM.
