The regulation of bovine mammary lactoferrin, an important component of the antimicrobial defenses of the mammary gland, is poorly understood compared with the other milk proteins. The complete sequence for bovine lactoferrin mRNA shows it to be highly homologous to other lactoferrins and transferrins. However, regional differences in the deduced AA sequence of bovine lactoferrin compared with human lactoferrin and transferrin imply functional differences between them. Steady-state levels of… CONTINUE READING
