Heat-induced Changes in the Hydrophobicity of Kappa-casein and β-Lactoglobulin


  • Notes that nonpolar regions of proteins become accesible as you denature it by heat.
  • Used ANS to determine how much hydrophobic regions of the proteins were exposed by the heat.
  • kappa-casein wasn't affected very much up to 80˚C and heating for 12 minutes.

Take home

This paper shows that kappa-casein is not affected by heat treatment.
