Red kidney beans were subjected to high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) treatment (50, 150, 250, 350, 450MPa) and phytohaemagglutinin (PHA) was then extracted by affinity chromatography. It appeared that HHP treatment could increase crude extract yield and decrease its haemagglutination activity. For purified samples, PHA yield was not affected at pressures <450MPa while the haemagglutination activity was noticeably reduced at 450MPa. The structural changes were investigated using electrophoresis, size exclusion chromatography (SEC), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and differencial scanning calorimetry (DSC). Electrophoresis and SEC profiles revealed a new high molecular weight polymer after 450MPa treatment. At pressures <450MPa, FTIR showed an increase in β-sheet structure and a decrease in α-helix. At 450MPa, the bands at 1688cm(-1), representing aggregate strands and random coils, increased. The conclusions are that pressures <450MPa can cause PHA unfolding and induce PHA aggregation at 450MPa.
