Corn oligopeptides(COP) were prepared via enzymatic hydrolysis of destarched corn proteins by Alcalase 2.4L. By investigated COP antialcoholism activity in vitro and in vivo, it is found that COP has highly antialcoholism activity. Meanwhile, the scavenging rate of blood alcohol concentration is positively correlated with the dose of COP. COP were separated by Sephadex G-15 gel chromatogram and RP—HPLC step by step, then fraction COPⅢ-17 was separated with highly antialcoholism activity. UPLC—Q—TOF—MS analysis showed that its amino acid sequence: P-Y-L-P-L-L-P-S.
