Expression of particular drug transporters in response to antibiotic pressure is a critical element in the development of bacterial multidrug resistance, and represents a serious concern for human health. To obtain a better understanding of underlying regulatory mechanisms, we have dissected the transcriptional activation of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC)(More)
Isolated porcine and bovine muscle strips were incubated in Krebs Ringer bicarbonate buffer to determine in vitro protein synthesis (PS) and protein degradation (PD) rates to validate the in vitro system for use with livestock species. The addition of 5X plasma concentrations of amino acids to the medium stimulated PS 30%. Addition of 3.5 mM leucine to a(More)
