Reevaluation of the protein requirement in young men with the indicator amino acid oxidation technique.
The indicator amino acid oxidation technique defined a protein requirement that is comparable with that estimated by the application of a biphase linear regression model to nitrogen balance data in the literature, and suggest that the current recommended protein requirements are too low and require reassessment. Expand
Different approaches to define individual amino acid requirements.
A minimally invasive indicator amino acid oxidation model has been developed which allows the determination of dietary essential amino acid requirements in children and other vulnerable populations. Expand
Adequate oral threonine is critical for mucin production and gut function in neonatal piglets.
The results suggest that adequate dietary threonine was critical in the production of mucus and that a parenteralThreonine supply can ameliorate most of the symptoms of oral threonines deficiency. Expand
Effect of ractopamine and sex on growth, carcass characteristics, processing yield, and meat quality characteristics of crossbred swine.
Loins of pigs fed RAC had lower cooking loss, greater Warner-Bratzler shear value, and higher fragmentation index value, whereas effects of sex were similar to or greater than the effects of 20 ppm of RAC. Expand
Effect of common antinutritive factors and fibrous feedstuffs in pig diets on amino acid digestibilities with special emphasis on threonine.
Hemicellulose fiber, at concentrations typical in commercial swine diets, reduces AID of AA by increasing endogenous losses, and understanding the differential effects of ANF on endogenous losses of individual dietary AA will improve the accuracy of diet formulation. Expand
Assessment of protein requirement in octogenarian women with use of the indicator amino acid oxidation technique.
The results of this study with octogenarian women suggest that the current EAR and RDA for elderly women may be underestimated, and the need for new research that uses alternative experimental designs and measuring physiologic, morphologic, and health-related outcomes is underscore. Expand
Indicator amino acid oxidation: concept and application.
The indicator amino acid oxidation (IAAO) method is based on the concept that when 1 indispensable amino acid (IDAA) is deficient for protein synthesis, then all other IDAA, including the indicatorExpand
Nutritional consequences of interspecies differences in arginine and lysine metabolism.
Differences in lysine and arginine requirements among various species such as omnivores (humans, pigs, rats, dogs), carnivores (cats), herbivores (rabbits, horses), ruminants (cattle), poultry, andExpand
Nutrient Requirements of Prolific Sows
The recent research shows that the current recommendations for both energy and amino acid intake in sows (NRC 1998) are incorrect by a significant margin. Expand
Arginine, ornithine, and proline interconversion is dependent on small intestinal metabolism in neonatal pigs.
Arginine synthesis is more dependent on the gut than proline synthesis, and in situations in which gut metabolism is compromised, arginine and proline are individually indispensable because their biosyntheses are negligible. Expand
