P, maximum precipitation can be obtained at the isoelectric point by addition of some reagents such as, ethanol which dehydrates the molecule and allow neutralization of charge.

The approximate position of the isoelectric point of casein can be obtained by determining the PH of minimum solubility. Creating downloadable prezi, be patient. Delete comment or cancel.

These pieces of information can be used to ask if positive selection correlates with lineages where pI is changing and if this correlates with changes in digestive system pH values.

Positive selection that is not explained by pI and pH changes would be strong candidates for alternative sources of adaptation. With this, the authors will have performed a nice study of the evolution of milk proteins in mammals. National Center for Biotechnology Information , U. Journal List Biol Direct v. Published online Jul Nora Khaldi 1, 2 and Denis C Shields 1, 2.

Abstract Background Milk proteins are required to proceed through a variety of conditions of radically varying pH , which are not identical across mammalian digestive systems. Results We investigated nine major milk proteins in 13 mammals. Conclusion The changes in charge are most likely due to changes of other protein functions, rather than an adaptation to the different mammalian digestive systems.

Background The isoelectric point pI and charge of a protein is important for solubility, subcellular localization, and interaction. Table 1 Function of milk proteins. Phosphoprotein carriers of minerals and trace elements. Open in a separate window.

Results and discussion Calculation of pI To investigate if the milk proteins have experienced shifts in their pI between different mammalian species, we selected nine milk proteins that share three main conditions; firstly they are representative of one of the three components of milk casein, whey, milk-fat-globules ; secondly they are present in at least eight mammalian species allowing for comparative genomics; finally the proteins possess a well characterized protein and cDNA sequence.

Are the shifts in the pI of some milk proteins important compared to whole proteome comparison? Differences in length between orthologs due to insertions or deletions are associated with the pI shift in certain proteins The change in pI between the milk proteins may reflect amino acid replacement at a number of residues, or they might be due to large insertions or deletions that cause large changes in pI.

Table 2 Sequence lengths for eight milk proteins in human, mouse, and cow. Selection causing pI change Can selection have contributed to the change in pI?

Selection pressures for changes in pI: Phosphorylation and glycosylation We observe that all the proteins that have shifted dramatically are ones that also happen to be highly glycosylated and phosphorylated. Conclusions Although the production of milk is conserved between mammals for over MA, our results argue that common proteins that have been shared by mammals are functionally diverging.

Orthologs and sequence evolution To find orthologous non-milk proteins, we identified way mutual best BLASTP hits among human, chimp, monkey macaque, mouse, rat, guinea pig, rabbit, cat, dog, horse, cow, opossum, and platypus. Defining significant pI shifting proteins A protein is considered as significantly shifting in, for example mouse, if the distance between its pI and that of its ortholog in human is higher than a threshold that is determined from the differences in pI of all orthologs between human and mouse Additional File 1.

Detecting selection in the charged residues To examine if the significant variation between human, chimp, mouse, and cow, in amino acid composition is due to selection, we gathered the DNA coding sequences of all milk-specific proteins from the ENSEMBL database. Competing interests The authors declare that they have no competing interests. Authors' contributions NK and DS conceived the study and wrote the paper.

Determination of isoelectric point of protein (casein). Introduction: Casein is a globular colloidal protein. Globular proteins are hydrophobic proteins which in certain external condition are soluble in eater. The ph at which the protein is electrically neutral is known as the isoelectric point.

Privacy FAQs

That pH value is known as the isoelectric point (IEP) of the protein and is generally the pH at which the protein is least soluble. For casein, the IEP is approximately and it is the pH value at which acid casein is precipitated.
