By B. J. F. Hudson

Advancements within the figuring out of nutrition protein constitution, behaviour and functions proceed apace. a lot of those have, long ago decade, been said and evaluated within the sequence 'Developments in meals seasoned­ teins' , comprising seven volumes, with a complete of fifty five chapters. The time has now come to re-assess the various issues reviewed in that sequence and so as to add sure others. even though, rather than assembling, a few­ what at random, foodstuff protein themes from particularly disparate fields in indi­ vidual volumes, we've determined to collect homogeneous teams of themes, every one representing a selected area of the topic. less than the final subject of 'Progress in meals Proteins' the 1st of those teams covers 'Biochemistry' . Readers will observe that, notwithstanding six of the subjects reviewed during this quantity are new, 5 of them have already featured in 'Developments in foodstuff Proteins'. those final are in lively learn fields during which new advance­ ments were of targeted importance. during this experience, as a result, they're welcome updates.

Since blocking agents N-ethylmaleimide and p-chloromercuribenzoic acid did not affect the viscosity of the mixture disulphide-sulphydryl groups were considered not to be involved in viscous interactions. g. 25°C, changes do appear to occur when sound velocity measurements are used. Sound velocity is affected by changes in water structure around the protein in solution. The sound velocity was reduced for a mixture of ovalbumin and j3-casein compared with values calculated from those of individual proteins.

The extent of proton transfer depends on the strengths of the acid and base. Hydrogen bonds with linear geometry are stronger than bent hydrogen bonds. To form H bonds between proteins, hydrogen bonds between protein and water are substituted for bonds between protein atoms. The energy of hydrogen bonds is reported to be 1-6 kcal/mol. 4,5 Hydrophobic Interactions In a polar aqueous environment the absence of hydrogen bonding between water and a non-polar solute is referred to as the hydrophobic interaction.

Further work in this area is necessary. The effect of other proteins on the gelation of plasma proteins highlights the importance of the compatibility of different ingredients in a product. In addition to interaction with egg albumen proteins, a degree of PROTEIN-PROTEIN INTERACfIONS 49 heating of the plasma proteins encourages interaction with other globular proteins such as whey. On the other hand, mixtures of porcine plasma and sodium caseinate, as well as soya isolate proteins, inhibit gelation or lead to phase separation, probably due to steric hindrance by the larger molecular weight and subunit structure of caseinate and soya isolates.
