The concentrations of individual casein and whey proteins in camel milk differ markedly to respective protein concentrations in bovine milk. The ratio of beta-casein to kappa-casein is considerably higher in camel milk. beta-Lactoglobulin is absent, but whey acidic protein and peptidoglycan recognition protein have been detected. Genomic sequences upstream to milk-protein genes, which are known to regulate the expression of milk proteins to a great extent, were determined for 10 camel milk… CONTINUE READING
