Plasma-derived protease inhibitors in bovine milk

Plasma-derived protease inhibitors in bovine milk Seven plasma-derived inhibitors, α 2 -macroglobulin, α 2 -antiplasmin, antithrombin III, C1-inhibitor, inter-α-trypsin inhibitor, bovine plasma elastase inhibitor (EI) and bovine plasma trypsin inhibitor (TI), have been identified in bovine colostrum and milk by western blot analysis and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Apart from individual concentration differences, significantly different levels were found in colostrum, and in milk from early, mid and late lactation. It is suggested that plasma-derived inhibitors are present in milk as a result of regulatory processes connected with mammary gland development and gradual involution. EI and TI might have additional functions as inhibitors of polymorphonuclear elastase and plasmin, respectively. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Dairy Journal Elsevier

Abstract

Seven plasma-derived inhibitors, α 2 -macroglobulin, α 2 -antiplasmin, antithrombin III, C1-inhibitor, inter-α-trypsin inhibitor, bovine plasma elastase inhibitor (EI) and bovine plasma trypsin inhibitor (TI), have been identified in bovine colostrum and milk by western blot analysis and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Apart from individual concentration differences, significantly different levels were found in colostrum, and in milk from early, mid and late lactation. It is suggested that plasma-derived inhibitors are present in milk as a result of regulatory processes connected with mammary gland development and gradual involution. EI and TI might have additional functions as inhibitors of polymorphonuclear elastase and plasmin, respectively.
