Antiviral activities of whey proteins.
Hong Kong, Hong Kong. In Appl Microbiol Biotechnol, Sep 2015
Many milk proteins encompassing native or chemically modified casein, lactoferrin, alpha-lactalbumin, and beta-lactoglobulin demonstrated antiviral activities.
Sequence specificity and transcriptional activation in the binding of lactoferrin to DNA.
New York City, United States. In Nature, 1995
Lactoferrin, an iron-binding glycoprotein found in high concentrations in human milk and other epithelial secretions and in the secondary (specific) granules of neutrophils, is thought to be responsible for primary defence against microbial infection, mainly as a result of lactoferrin sequestration of iron required for microbial growth.
