Application

Casein sodium salt from bovine milk is suitable for use in:
• the preparation of casein-based diets to investigate nutritional effect of vitamin E in diets for Litopenaeus vannamei postlarve
• in an assay to determine the activity of a three-enzyme solution containing trypsin, chymotrypsin and peptidase
• a study to investigate the effects of bovine somatotropin (bST) administration and abomasal casein infusion on nitrogen metabolism in Holstein steers
• as constituent of blocking solution in immunoblotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

α-Casein can be an immunogen in young children, and anti-α-casein antibodies have strong cross-reactivity with insulin. This effect can explain the uncommon insulin autoimmunity, but it does not appear to progress to Type I diabetes.

Casein sodium salt from bovine milk is a phosphoprotein. There are four main types of Casein which make up approximately 80% of the total protein in bovine milk: α-s1 Casein, α-s2 Casein, β-Casein, and κ-Casein. Casein is proposed to be the main protective constituent in milk.
