Coadsorption onto hydroxyapatite of human salivary mucins and phosvitin, a phosphoprotein from egg yolk.


The adsorption of human salivary mucins (HWSM, 0.4 mg/ml) onto hydroxyapatite (HAP) was studied in the presence of varying amounts of the phosphoprotein phosvitin by three different procedures. a. Preadsorption of HWSM onto HAP for 20 h, followed by 4 h coadsorption with phosvitin, resulted in a decrease of 50% in HWSM binding to HAP with 0.3 mg/ml… (More)
