The response of the mammal to varying dietary protein intake under conditions in which amino acid and energy requirements are adequately satisfied is a form of adaptation involving the utilization of varying proportions of carbohydrate and amino acids as sources of energy, and is therefore analogous to the adaptation seen in bacteria on change in form of energy source (1). The amino nitrogen resulting from the utilization of amino acids for energy requirements is excreted largely as urea. This… CONTINUE READING
