The association of hen eggs’ lysozyme with caseins was studied by using three casein substrates: (I) solutions of the various caseins, (II) artificially made casein micelles of various compositions and (III) caseins adsorbed onto soya-oil emulsion droplets. In solution, lysozyme associated most strongly with αs-casein, less with β-casein and not with κ-casein. Accordingly, lysozyme associated less with casein micelles composed of β- and κ-casein (ratio 1 : 2) than with whole casein micelles… CONTINUE READING
