Biochem/physiol Actions

Partial gastrointestinal digestion of casein is a rich source of bioactive peptides, such as β-casomorphin. However, bovine casein is not homogeneous; variants A1 and B do lead to production of β-casomorphin 7 production, while A2 does not.
Numerous experimental applications including use as a blocking agent in immunochemistry, recovery of enzyme activity from SDS extracted samples, and as a substrate for protease and kinase assays.

In highly sensitized patients, the encounter with a specific allergen from food, insect stings or medications may rapidly induce systemic anaphylaxis with potentially lethal symptoms. Countless animal models of anaphylaxis, most often in BALB/c mice, were established to understand the...

Antibiotic resistance is spreading faster than the introduction of new compounds into clinical practice, causing a public health crisis. Most antibiotics were produced by screening soil microorganisms, but this limited resource of cultivable bacteria was overmined by the 1960s. Synthetic...
