Lactose synthase monomer, Bos taurus + alpha-lactalbumin (mouse)
|PDB structures||RCSB PDB PDBe PDBsum|
It consists of N-acetyllactosamine synthase and alpha-lactalbumin. Alpha-lactalbumin, which is expressed in response to prolactin, increases the affinity of N-acetyllactosamine synthase for its substrate, causing increased production of lactose during lactation.
