Casein structures in the context of unfolded proteins

Thorn, David C.; Ecroyd, Heath; Carver, John A.; Holt, Carl


Caseins were among the first proteins to be recognised as functional but unfolded. Many others are now known, providing better models of casein behaviour than either detergents or folded proteins. Caseins are members of a paralogous group of unfolded phosphoproteins, some of which share the ability to sequester amorphous calcium phosphate through phosphate centres. Non-covalent interactions of caseins can be through Pro- and Gln-rich sequences. Similar sequences in other unfolded proteins can...[Show more]
