Rats bearing the Yoshida AH-130 ascites hepatoma show decreased activity of neutral amino acid transport in skeletal muscle measuredin vivo as the tissue accumulation of the analogue α-amino [1-14C]isobutyrate (AIB). The decreased accumulation of AIB observed is not merely a consequence of the hypoinsulinaemia present in these animals (as a result of tumour… CONTINUE READING
