Scientists at the Cleveland Clinic are working on a vaccine against the protein alpha-lactalbumin, which is only found in breast cancer cells and mammary cells of lactating women.
Whey protein contains proteins like alpha-lactalbumin which is is rich in sulphur-containing amino acids.
And whenever they used the GM line that had less protein, they compensated by adding lactalbumin (a superior quality milk protein) so that the overall protein content was equal between all groups.
Both lactalbumin and lactoglobulin are names of whey proteins.
Then the whey protein called alpha-lactalbumin bonds them together to make the complex sugar we know as lactose.
Alpha-lactalbumin has a protein efficiency ratio of 4.
AND MENDEL. L. B.: A quantitative comparison of casein, lactalbumin and edestin for growth and maintenance.
The heavy proteins remain in the curd, and the protein that goes through with the whey is chiefly the lactalbumin.
Although the special substance, known as HAMLET (Human Alpha-lactalbumin Made LEthal to Tumour cells), was discovered in breast milk several years ago, it is only now that it has been possible to test it on humans.
EvoPro Collegiate Protein Blend is comprised of like Proteins including alpha and beta micellar caseins, alpha-lactalbumin, whey concentrates, whey isolates, whey peptides, and Protein hydrolysate.
