Abstract

Multiple phosphoseryl-containing sequences of peptides and proteins stabilize amorphous calcium phosphate at neutral and alkaline pH and have been implicated in the nucleation/regulation of biomineralization. In an approach to analyze these peptides using capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) we have attempted to relate the absolute electrophoretic mobility of various casein phosphopeptides to their physicochemical properties. Multiple phosphoseryl-containing peptides were selectively precipitated from enzymic digests of sodium caseinate and further purified using RP-HPLC and anion-exchange fast protein liquid chromatography. Purified fractions were then analyzed by CZE. Absolute electrophore..
