Phosvitin-calcium aggregation and organization at the air-water interface.

Phosvitin, an egg yolk protein constituted by 50% of phosphorylated serines, presents good emulsifying properties whereas its interfacial properties are not yet clearly elucidated and remain object of discussion. Phosvitin has a high charge density and naturally forms aggregates through phosphocalcic bridges in egg yolk. This high charge density, doubled by… CONTINUE READING
