A hydrolysate of bovine lactoferrin produced by heat treatment under acidic conditions had antibacterial activity at concentrations of 10 micrograms/ml in the culture medium. The optimal degree of hydrolysis for this activity was about 10%. Heat-treated lactoferrin, treated at pH 2.0 and 120 degrees C for 15 min and degree of hydrolysis of about 10%, had no… CONTINUE READING
