Casein, a phosphoprotein, is the principal protein component of milk which is almost entirely expressed in the lactating mammary gland. In bovine milk they are classified according to their calcium sensitivity: αs1-, αs2-, and β-caseins precipitate in the presence of calcium; whereas κ-casein remains in solution.

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.

The possible mechanism of casein aggregation and micelle buildup was studied in a new approach by letting α-casein adsorb from low concentration (0.1 mg·ml(-1)) solutions onto the charged surfaces of polyelectrolyte films. It was found that α-casein could adsorb onto...
The major physiological function of milk is the transport of amino acids, carbohydrates, lipids and minerals to mammalian offspring. Caseins, the major milk proteins, are secreted in the form of a micelle consisting of protein and calcium-phosphate.We have analysed the...
