Bovine β-casein has a polydisperse distribution of equilibrium micelles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

β-casein, a self-associating protein, has been extensively studied over the years, and it is a molecule that is of academic, industrial, and clinical relevance. Therefore it is of interest to understand the structural and conformational properties of the assemblies, also denoted micelles. Here we show that β-casein possess a polydisperse distribution of equilibrium micelles, which has, to the authors knowledge, not been published before.
