Most indigenous enzymes are inactive in milk due to inappropriate environmental conditions or lack of suitable substrates Enzyme Technology and destroyed by pasteurization to create a standardized product. q Indigenous milk enzymes arise mainly from three potential sources: Blood Secretary cell cytoplasm The milk fat globule membrane. 2. q.

For example: In general the lower chain FFAs (C4 – C8) impart rancid flavors. The fat globules are surrounded by a thin membrane called the milk fat globule membrane (MFGM).

however it is thought that it is not completely inactivated and may be active in some milk products. apo-CII. LPL is susceptible to standard high temperature short time (HTST) pasteurization. LPL is activated by an apolipoprotein activator. and is present in high enough concentrations in milk to be of real danger in terms of its spoilage capability.Lipoprotein Lipase • It is a water soluble enzyme that hydrolyzes triglycerides in lipoproteins. Indigenous LPL is present in milk via leakage through the mammary cell membrane from the blood where it is involved in the metabolism of plasma triglycerols. 4/15/12 • • • .

Pseudomonas is the most frequently 4/15/12 reported psychrotroph in raw milk . however lipolytic spoilage rarely occurs in pasteurized milk.Bacterial Lipases • Extracellular lipases produced by psychrotrophic bacteria have the potential to cause hydrolytic rancidity in milk and milk products as these dominate in typical cold bulk milk storage conditions. • Lipases of psychrotrophic bacteria have varying heat stability and some can survive pasteurization.

Phospholipases • Phospholipase activity has been identified in milk LPL and in several bacteria. Phospholipases are potentially very important in milk as they degrade the phospholipids of the MFGM. These enzymes are also quite heat stable and are not destroyed by pasteurization. 4/15/12 • • . thereby making the fat susceptible to hydrolysis.

PROTEINASES A few indigenous milk proteinases have been identified in bovine milk. Plasmin or Milk Alkaline Proteinase. 2. 4/15/12 . but only two appear to be of importance in the dairy industry: 1. Cathepsin D or Acid Milk Proteinase.

The concentration of plasmin and plasminogen in milk increases with advancing lactation. Its role in blood is to break down blood clots and is a part of a complex system consisting of activators and inhibitors.

and still exhibits about 20% activity at 5°C.5 and 35°C. It is active over a wide pH range from pH 4 to 9 and is quite heat stable.• Plasmin has a high specificity for peptide bonds with a carboxyl group supplied by lysine or arginine. It has an optimum activity at pH 7. 4/15/12 • • LYSINE ARGININE .

Plasmin is also associated with the generation of “gluey” and “bitter” off flavors during storage of UHT milks and is a major factor affecting their shelf life. It can accelerate cheese ripening by the activation of plasminogen to plasmin in the cheese. 4/15/12 • • • .• Plasmin can have a positive or negative effect on cheese making as it is involved in proteolysis during ripening. It is also linked to poor curd formation in cheese made from late lactation milks.

and may contribute to proteolysis in cheese. It is relatively heat labile as it is inactivated by 70°C for 10 min. but has very poor milk clotting activity. • 4/15/12 .Cathepsin D or Acid Milk Proteinase • Cathepsin D (EC 3.23. but not significantly.4.5) is a lysozomal enzyme that has a similar specificity to chymosin.

It has a pH and temperature optima differing from physiological values. The enzyme is destroyed by minimum pasteurization temperatures.Alkaline Phosphomonoesterase (Phosphatase) v Phosphatase enzymes are able to split specific phosporic acid esters into phosphoric acid and the related alcohols. 4/15/12 v v . pH of 9.8.

which destroys interchain bridging via phosphate groups between casein polypeptides and calcium ions. The enzyme is active against caseins.v Phosphomonoesterase The enzyme is a glycoprotein and (Phosphatase) has a lower optimum pH than that of alkaline phosphatase (pH 5). Acid phosphatase hydrolyses aromatic phosphomonoesters. This enzyme affects casein micelle formation through dephosphorylation of casein. 4/15/12 Alkaline v v v .

The mode of action of this system has been 4/15/12 used to cold pasteurize v v .LACTOPEROXIDASE v Peroxidases have been shown to be involved in antibacterial activity. Lactoperoxidase requires H2O2 and thiocyanate to cause bacterial inhibition.


Lysozyme hydrolyses the (1-4)-linkage between muramic acid and Nacetylglucosamine of mucopolysaccharides of the bacterial cell wall. Lysozyme is fairly heat stable in acid conditions, but heat labile at pH 7 or above. Lysozyme is effectively an antibacterial agent .




It concentrated in the MFGM where it is one of the principal proteins. All of the major milk proteins can act as either activators or inhibitors of xanthine oxidase. The pH optimum is about 8.5 , the enzyme requires flavin, adenine,dinucleotide, other cofactors. It in milk is associated with oxidative rancidity. Xanthine oxidase has been implicated as having bacteriostatic 4/15/12

costs associated with ripening become a major issue. Raw milk cheese should be ripened for 60 days or more as a safeguard against pathogens. where a mature cheese is typically 12 to 18 months old.ACCELERATED CHEESE RIPENING v Cheese curd can be made from raw or pasteurized milk.
