Rats become averse to the odor of a protein-free diet presented after gastric administration of loads devoid of histidine and isoleucine but otherwise balanced in amino acid composition. The specificExpand

The electrophoresis of histones and histone fractions on starch gel.

Protein-deprived rats were given, on one day, a balanced mixture of amino acids followed by access to protein-free food having a distinctive odour. On another day, an imbalanced (histidine-free)Expand

Predicted that pairing an anorexigenic dose (.25-1 mg/kg) of cycloheximide with odorized food would induce conditioned aversion in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Results support the hypothesis andExpand

Rates of absorption by rat intestine of pancreatic hydrolysates of proteins and their corresponding amino acid mixtures.
1. Though the occurrence of intestinal mucosal uptake of intact peptides, with cellular hydrolysis to amino acids, has been established, the importance of this mode of absorption in proteinExpand

An histidine-devoid but otherwise balanced amino acid mixture depressed food intake from 2 hr after its gastric intubation. It induced conditioned aversion to an odour incorporated in a protein-freeExpand

The C-terminal amino acids and sequences of calf and rat thymus histones.
Abstract 1. 1. In order to clarify further the complexity of the histones, the C-terminal amino acids of the five main histone fractions from calf thymus have been examined by means ofExpand

Subcutaneous dialysis in the study of the effects of nutrients on feeding.
A cellophane dialysis bag containing small molecular weight solids is implanted under the skin of the rat. Sodium chloride, glucose and hydrolyzed casein give differential effects on food and waterExpand
