Coaggregation of κ-casein and β-lactoglobulin produces morphologically distinct amyloid fibrils

Raynes, J. K.; Day, L.; Crepin, Pauline; Horrocks, Mathew H.; Carver, John


The unfolding, misfolding, and aggregation of proteins lead to a variety of structural species. One form is the amyloid fibril, a highly aligned, stable, nanofibrillar structure composed of β-sheets running perpendicular to the fibril axis. β-Lactoglobulin (β-Lg) and κ-casein (κ-CN) are two milk proteins that not only individually form amyloid fibrillar aggregates, but can also coaggregate under environmental stress conditions such as elevated temperature. The aggregation between β-Lg and κ-CN...[Show more]
