|Title:||Cloud point extraction applied to casein proteins of cow milk and their identification by mass spectrometry|
|Abstract:||This work describes the optimization of a cloud point extraction (CPE) method for casein proteins from cow milk samples. To promote phase separation, polyoxyethylene(S) isooctylphenyl ether (Triton (R) X-114) and sodium chloride (NaCl) were used as nonionic surfactant and electrolyte, respectively. Using multivariate studies, four major CPE variables were evaluated: Triton (R) X-114 concentration, sample volume, NaCl concentration, and pH. The results show that surfactant concentration and sample volume were the main variable affecting the CPE process, with the following optimized parameters: 1% (w/v) Triton (R) X-114 concentration, 50 mu L of sample volume, 6% (w/v) NaCl concentration and extractions carried out at pH 7.0. At these conditions, 923 +/- 66 and 67 +/- 2 mu g mL(-1) of total protein were found in the surfactant-rich and surfactant-poor phases, respectively. Finally, matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) was then used to evaluate those target proteins (alpha(s1)-casein, alpha(s2),-casein and beta-casein) separation as well as to check the efficiency of the extraction procedure, making a fingerprint of those target proteins possible.
