Immune components of bovine colostrum and milk.
Colostrum and milk provide a complete diet for the neonate. In ruminants, colostrum is also the sole source of initial acquired immunity for the offspring. Milk therefore plays an important role inExpand
Alterations in the salivary proteome associated with periodontitis.
AIM To identify changes in the salivary proteome associated with active periodontitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Quantitative proteomics (two-dimensional sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gelExpand
The BSP30 salivary proteins from cattle, LUNX/PLUNC and von Ebner's minor salivary gland protein are members of the PSP/LBP superfamily of proteins.
Saliva influences rumen function in cattle, yet the biochemical role for most of the bovine salivary proteins (BSPs) has yet to be established. Two cDNAs (BSP30a and BSP30b) from bovine parotidExpand
The mammalian secreted RNases: Mechanisms of action in host defence
The mammalian ribonucleaseA family comprises a large group of structurally similar proteins which are secreted by a range of tissues and immune cells. Their physiological role is unclear. It has beenExpand
The abundance of milk cathelicidin proteins during bovine mastitis.
Current on-farm methods for detecting mastitis in dairy cows have limitations with their specificity and sensitivity, particularly at an early stage of infection. There is therefore a need to exploreExpand
The bovine salivary proteins BSP30a and BSP30b are independently expressed BPI-like proteins with anti-Pseudomonas activity.
The family of BPI-like proteins are thought to play a role in innate immunity of the airways and oral cavity. They have similarities with bactericidal/permeability-increasing protein (BPI), anExpand
Host defence related responses in bovine milk during an experimentally induced Streptococcus uberis infection
BackgroundMilk contains a range of proteins of moderate or low abundance that contribute to host defence. Characterisation of these proteins, the extent to which their abundance is regulated byExpand
Comparative analysis of human milk and infant formula derived peptides following in vitro digestion.
It has long been recognised that there are differences between human milk and infant formulas which lead to differences in health and nutrition for the neonate. In this study we examine and compareExpand
Molecular modification associated with the heat treatment of bovine milk
Abstract Raw bovine milk was heated using common industrial heat treatment conditions to determine how treatment conditions modify proteins and lipids. Processing temperature and time were found toExpand
Formulation for Oral Delivery of Lactoferrin Based on Bovine Serum Albumin and Tannic Acid Multilayer Microcapsules
Lactoferrin (Lf) has considerable potential as a functional ingredient in food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications. However, the bioavailability of Lf is limited as it is susceptible toExpand
