lac·tal·bu·min

(lak'tal-byū'min),
The albumin fraction of milk. It contains two proteins: α- and β-lactalbumin; the former, minor lactalbumin, interacts with galactosyl transferase to form lactose synthase, which synthesizes lactose from d-glucose and UDP-galactose in milk production; β-lactalbumin is the chief whey protein in bovine milk; α-lactalbumin is the most heat-stable of the whey proteins.

lactalbumin

(lăk′tăl-byo͞o′mĭn)
n.
The albumin contained in milk and obtained from whey.

lactalbumin

Any of a group of proteins contained in milk.

lac·tal·bu·min

(lak'tal-bū'min)

Examples of these upregulated genes include LALBA [6] (lactalbumin, alpha-), which encodes a principal milk protein that enables lactose production; CCKAR (cholecystokinin A receptor), which encodes a major physiological mediator of pancreatic enzyme secretion and smooth muscle contraction of the gallbladder and stomach; HCRTR2 [hypocretin (orexin) receptor 2], which encodes a protein involved in stimulation of food intake; MCHR1 (melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1), which encodes a protein involved in neuronal regulation of food consumption; and DMP1 (dentin matrix acidic phosphoprotein 1), which encodes an extracellular matrix protein crucial for proper mineralization of bone and dentin (see Table 2 in the online Data Supplement).
