A method for the separation of the beta-LG variants A, B, and C was developed using free zone capillary electrophoresis. A separation buffer consisting of 50 mM 2-(N-morpholino)ethane sulfonic acid (pH 8.0) and polyoxyethylene (20)-sorbitan monolaurate was used for the separation. Milk samples from 424 Jersey cows were phenotyped using this method, and the(More)
For the whole of the 20th century it was believed that the Black Death and all the plagues of Europe (1347–1670) were epidemics of bubonic plague. This review presents evidence that this view is incorrect and that the disease was a viral haemorrhagic fever, characterised by a long incubation period of 32 days, which allowed it to be spread widely even with(More)
beta-Lactoglobulin is a whey protein that affects milk composition and product functionality and which can be present in up to eight genetic variant forms. A free zone capillary electrophoresis method has been developed to separate and identify the beta-lactoglobulin A, B and C variants. Three buffer systems [borate, 2-(N-morpholino)-ethanesulphonic acid(More)
The separation of the four major whey proteins by sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS)-capillary gel electrophoresis (CGE) is described. Whilst commercially purified whey proteins could be analysed using the recommended protocol, the more complex nature of an acid whey and a reconstituted whey protein concentrate (WPC) powder necessitated considerable refinement(More)
