Nα-Benzoyl-DL-arginine β-naphthylamide hydrochloride has been used as a substrate in the BANA test to evaluate the inhibitory activity of stefin. It has also been used as a substrate for the determination of Ki values of inhibitors toward trypsin.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Nα-Benzoyl-DL-arginine β-naphthylamide hydrochloride (BANA) helps to determine the activities of cathepsin B and papain. BANA test is also useful in identifying the number of periodontal sites with periodontal pathogens. Presence of volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs), synthesized by oral bacteria in dental plaque or tongue coating can be colorimetrically confirmed by their ability to hydrolyze N-benzoyl-DL-arginine-2-naphthylamide.


A chromogenic substrate for trypsin.

Although the association between periodontal disease (PD) and adverse pregnancy outcomes has gained recognition amongst antenatal healthcare workers, not much has changed in practice to address it. This prospective study tested the hypothesis that BANA (N-benzoyl-DL-arginine-2-naphthylamide), a diagnostic test for
