Abstract

In order to investigate the general characteristics of ATPase and ATPase thermostability between porcine white muscle and red muscle, myofibrillar proteins were prepared and compared their physicochemical characteristics. SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoretic analyses showed that a protein band of 30,000 daltons was detected noticeably in myofibril from red muscle, but negligibly in myofibril from white muscle. The noticeable differences were found between porcine white muscle and red muscle for the activities of EDTA-ATPase, Ca-ATPase and Mg-ATPase. Myofibrillar proteins from white muscle showed higher thermostability than those from red muscle. Thermodynamic parameters, enthalpy $({\Delta}H^#)$, entropy $({\Delta}S^#)$, etc., showed characteristic variations between porcine white muscle and red muscle.
