Lactoperoxidase is a glycoprotein derived from bovine milk, and has no antibacterial effect on its own; but in combination with thiocyanate (naturally present in saliva and gastric juices) and the produced hydrogen peroxide, the resulting chemical reaction creates an antibacterial compound which has a bacteriostatic effect on most bacteria within the mouth.
Topics of discussion include antimicrobial activity of lactoferrin and lactoferrin-derived peptides, dietary protein requirements for preterm infants in the neonatal period, antimicrobial activity of lactoferrin and lactoperoxidase in milk, and determination of protein degradability and its importance in ruminant nutrition.
