Quality and Processing of Meat and Derivatives

Quality-and-Processing-of-Meat-and-Derivatives The research concerns:
- Molecular characterization of the proteins of meat sarcomere (buffalo, bovine, pig and poultry) by electrophoretic and mass spectrometry techniques;
- Identification of molecular markers of different animal species in meat products;
- Definition of the proteolytic profile changes during the tenderization process.
