Two novel bovine beta-lactoglobulins I and J have been isolated from bovine milk and characterized by isoelectric focusing. Their primary structure was determined by a very rapid method consisting of a combination of Edman sequencing, mass analysis, and ladder sequencing by mass spectrometry. We found that both new beta-lactoglobulins are of the bovine beta-lactoglobulin B-variant type. beta-lactoglobulin I shows Gly instead of Glu at position 108, whereas beta-lactoglobulin J shows a Pro-to-Leu exchange at position 126.
