Alteration of serum lipoprotein metabolism by polychlorinated biphenyls and methionine in rats fed a soybean protein diet.

The effects of dietary supplementation of methionine to a 20% soybean protein isolate diet on serum lipoprotein profiles and secretion rate of VLDL in rats receiving polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) were investigated. Serum cholesterol levels were higher in rats fed PCB or a methionine supplement than in controls. The effects of PCB and methionine were… CONTINUE READING
