    Scientists propose that casein micelles consist of a complex of submicelles. The calcium phosphate and hydrophobic interactions between submicelles contribute to the stability of the micelle. Kappa casein around the outside stabilises the micelles against aggregation.

    Key
    A: submicelle
    B: protruding chain
    C: calcium phosphate
    D: kappa casein
    E: phosphate group
