Structure and functionality of wheat gluten proteins

  title={Structure and functionality of wheat gluten proteins},
  author={Bhupendar Singh Khatkar},
Wheat gluten proteins consist of gliadins and glutenins. An appropriate balance in the amount of these two major protein components of gluten is required for achieving the desired end product quality. Variation in the composition and physical properties of the glutenin polypeptides appear to be largely responsible for the differences in the gluten viscoelasticity of wheat varieties. Using improved protein separation and purification techniques, physical methods and genetic engineering, it has…

Improve Nitrogen use efficiency of wheat cultivars under Western Australian conditions

NUE could be improved by selecting specific combinations of NAM gene alleles for target environments by fine-tuning the duration of growth phases influencing the sink-source relationships, as concluded.

Variations in Amino Acid and Protein Profiles in White versus Brown Teff (Eragrostis Tef) Seeds, and Effect of Extraction Methods on Protein Yields

White and brown seed types showed different physical changes during protein extraction and Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate Gel Electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) analysis revealed clear genetic variability between white and brown teff seed types.

On the study of the different factors influencing the structure and the texture of semi-humid baked aerated cereal products : sensory and instrumental dimensions of texture

Since texture is the manifestation of structural, mechanical and surface properties of a material, it represents a key characteristic for food materials. It reflects food quality, freshness



Molecular and physico-chemical basis of breadmaking : Properties of wheat gluten proteins : A critical appraisal

Wheat gluten consists mainly of the storage protein of wheat endosperm, i.e., gliadin and glutenin. Upon hydration and during processing, gliadin and glutenin interact to form a unique viscoelastic

Functional properties of wheat gliadins. I. Effects on mixing characteristics and bread making quality

The effects of addition of total gliadin and gliadin subfractions on the 2 g Mixograph parameters and loaf volume data of cv. Hereward base flour were studied. The addition of increasing levels of

A Comparative Study of the Inter‐Relationships Between Mixograph Parameters and Bread‐ Making Qualities of Wheat Flours and Glutens

The mixing characteristics and bread-making qualities of flours, reconstituted flours and glutens from a diverse range of wheat cultivars obtained from Canada, France and the UK, were investigated.

Quality-related Epitopes of High Mr Subunits of Wheat Glutenin

The location of the epitopes in sequences of overlapping β-turns in the repetitive region supports the hypothesis that dough elasticity arises partly fromβ-turn-forming secondary structure in the repeat regions of the Mr glutenin subunits, thus improving dough strength.

Allelic Variation at Glutenin Subunit and Gliadin Loci, Glu-1, Glu-3 and Gli-1 of Common Wheats. II. Biochemical Basis of the Allelic Effects on Dough Properties

The biochemical basis of allelic effects of different glutenin subunit loci and gliadin loci on dough strength was studied in a set of 74 recombinant inbred lines from two sites and in certain biotypes differing only for high Mr glutenin alleles (subunits 5 + 10 and 2 + 12) at the Glu-D1 locus.
