Casein micelles of mouse milk consist of alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and kappa-caseins. By digestion with alkaline phosphatase, they were separated as an independent band by sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE). The compositions of alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and kappa-caseins were 24.3, 25.1, 9.4, and 41.2% in colostrum, and 36.8, 15.6, 11.9, and 35.7% in mature milk, respectively. Zero-day-old pups were allowed to access either colostrum or mature milk, and the… CONTINUE READING
