An Odorant-binding Protein in Bovine Colostrum

1. General features of OBP OBP was first found in 1985 in bovine nasal mucosa as an abundant protein, which is capable of binding bell pepper odor, 2-isobutyl-3-methoxy pyridine. This protein has a hydrophobic internal cavity in the β-barrel domain, and it can bind low molecular weight (usually less than 300 Da) hydrophobic molecules in the cavity with… CONTINUE READING
