Characterization of a heterogeneous camel milk whey non-casein protein.


A milk protein, occurring in the whey fraction, has been characterized from camel milk. Determination of the primary structure reveals the existence of two related types of chain with residue differences in at least the N-terminal region. A fragment representing an N-terminal part of the protein was also recovered (heterogeneous at the same positions). The absence of cysteine residues in the protein shows that no disulphide bridges are present. The pattern of fragments and a parent protein resembles that for casein and its fragments, showing that fragments and a multiplicity of forms may be typical for different milk proteins.
