Phylogenetic Analysis of Invertebrate Lysozymes and the Evolution of Lysozyme Function
Abstract. We isolated and sequenced the cDNAs coding for lysozymes of six bivalve species. Alignment and phylogenetic analysis showed that, together with recently described bivalve lysozymes, theExpand

Casein peptide release and passage to the blood in humans during digestion of milk or yogurt.
In adult humans, after milk or yogurt ingestion, many peptides derived from alpha s1-, beta- or kappa-caseins were detected in stomach, including the kappa-caseinoglycopeptide, an inhibitor ofExpand

Purification and characterization of two lysozymes from rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri).
1. Two different lysozymes, designated I and II, were purified from the kidney of rainbow trout. The enzymes had isoelectric points of approximately 9.5 and 9.65, and differed in their bindingExpand
