Amino acids and insulin are both required to regulate assembly of the eIF4E. eIF4G complex in rat skeletal muscle.

The respective roles of insulin and amino acids in regulation of skeletal muscle protein synthesis and degradation after feeding were examined in rats fasted for 17 h and refed over 1 h with either a 25 or a 0% amino acid/protein meal. In each nutritional condition, postprandial insulin secretion was either maintained (control groups: C(25) and C(0)) or… CONTINUE READING
