24364857 The acidic fragment of human Abeta (Abeta1-11) and a phosphorylated fragment of beta-Casein induced tau fibrillization in vitro.
24189037 Milk congestion gives rise to higher levels of beta-casomorphin-8 in milk and plasma than in lactating women without problems.
19463972 derivatives of peptide fragment (54-59) exhibit immunosuppressant activity

16973758 a negative cross talk between PR and Stat5a/GR may contribute to the physiological role of progesterone to repress lactogenic hormone induction of the beta-casein gene
16947075 The RCM-kappa does form concentration-dependent micelles. Also, beta-CN phosphorylation level influences micelle formation. Complexes were low-temperature reversible and RCM-kappa fibrils were seen.
