Anim Genet. 1996 Apr;27(2):105-7. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2052.1996.tb00477.x.

Abstract

A new kappa-casein variant (kappa-CN G) with a frequency of 0.003 was demonstrated in Pinzgauer cattle from Austria and Bavaria, Germany by isoelectric focusing in polyacrylamide gels and by alkaline polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Kappa-CN G was not present in milk samples of Limpurger, another endangered breed.
