Relative effects of primary and tertiary structure on helix formation in myoglobin and alpha-lactalbumin

, : Relative effects of primary and tertiary structure on helix formation in myoglobin and alpha-lactalbumin. Biopolymers 10(5): 895-914

UV optical rotatary dispersion was used to study the degree of helicity in the CNBr peptides of myoglobin and reduced S-carboxymethylated alpha -lactalbumin in aqueous and ethanolic solutions. In aqueous solution the degree of helicity was small. In the native form, alpha -lactalbumin has lower % helix content than myoglobin. However, helix formation comparable to that in myoglobin peptides was induced by high ethanol concn. in the 33-residue C-terminal peptide of alpha -lactalbumin.

Golden Delicious apples stored at pressures of 0.07 and 0.05 MPa produced much less aromatic substances than fruits stored at 0.1 MPa. It is suggested that this is due to a lack of ethylene synthesis and/or ethylene effect in these reduced pressur...
