Tributyrin, a short-chain triglyceride oil used as a food additive, has been reported to be a potential preventive agent against colon cancer. The purpose of this study was to develop tributyrin delivery systems based on food-grade oil-in-water emulsions that could potentially be incorporated into foods. Emulsions containing only tributyrin as the lipid(More)
The dairy protein β-lactoglobulin (βlg) is known to bind hydrophobic ligands such as fatty acids. In the present work, we investigated the biological activity in vitro of linoleate once complexed to bovine βlg. Binding of linoleate (C18:2) to bovine βlg was achieved by heating at 60 °C for 30 min at pH 7.4, resulting in a linoleate/βlg molar binding(More)
Ligand-binding properties of β-lactoglobulin (β-lg) are well documented, but the subsequent biological functions are still unclear. Focusing on fatty acids/β-lg complexes, the structure-function relationships are reviewed in the light of the structural state of the protein (native versus non-native aggregated proteins). After a brief description of β-lg(More)
The dairy protein β-lactoglobulin (βlg) is known to form a complex with fatty acids (FA). Due to industrial processing, βlg is often in its non-native form in food products, which can modify the FA/βlg complex properties. We investigated the interaction of bovine βlg, in selected structural forms (native βlg, a covalent dimer and as nanoparticles), with(More)
The dairy protein β-lactoglobulin (BLG) is known to bind fatty acids such as the salt of the essential longchain fatty acid linoleic acid (cis,cis-9,12-octadecadienoic acid, n-6, 18:2). The aim of the current study was to investigate how bovine BLG-linoleate complexes, of various stoichiometry, affect the enzymatic digestion of BLG and the intracellular(More)
