Title:
Administration of caseinomacropeptide-enriched extract to mice enhances the calcium content of femur in a low-calcium diet 
Abstract:
Caseinomacropeptide (CMP) is the 64 C-terminal amino acid residue of κ-casein, formed by chymosin cleavage during cheese manufacture. This study examined the effects of oral administration of a CMP-enriched extract (CMPEE), obtained from a local dairy plant, on the Ca content of mouse femurs. Animals received low (0.1%, w/v), normal (0.5%, w/v) or high (1.2%, w/v) Ca diet for 3 or 8 weeks and CMPEE diluted (1:10) in their drinking water. No significant differences in Ca content were observed in...    »
