Abstract:

Relationship between gel hardness and protein structure of ovalbumin-dextran(O-D) conjugates were investigated. The conjugates were prepared at 60°C and 65% relative humidity for 0 – 5 days. The results showed that the conjugate gels became regular and compact with incubation time, especially the microstructure of the 5 d conjugate gel was almost slick. Strong correlations were found between gel hardness and α-helix, β-sheet plus random coil content of the O-D conjugates. The results indicated that gel hardness and α-helix content of the conjugates correlated (R2 = 0.98422) using Gauss model, gel hardness and β-sheet content of the conjugates correlated (R2 = 0.98236) using Expdecl model, and furthermore, gel hardness and random coil content of the conjugates correlated (R2 = 0.98454) using Gauss model.
