Development of a PCR-RFLP Test to Discriminate between Beta-Casein B and CBT Allele in Romanian Buffalo

Valentin A. BALTEANU

Abstract


The only genetic variant known in the β-casein locus in Italian Buffalo and other European buffalo breeds, namely B, is currently used as a genetic marker to identify adulteration with cattle milk of buffalo cheeses, after a procedure of plasmin digestion and IEF migration of digestion products (gamma caseins) (Addeo et al., 1990).
