Abstract

The urinary excretion of the unique amino acid, 3-methylhistidine (3MH), has been proposed as a marker of endogenous protein catabolism and an index of a patient's metabolic state. Yet, the mechanisms of the renal handling of 3MH remain unclear. Consequently, we determined the simultaneous clearance of 3MH (C3MH) and inulin (Cin) in rats.Net reabsorption of… (More)
