The rate of protein synthesis in the whole body was measured in one fed subject with seven 15N-labelled amino acids (intravenous and oral doses) and two 15N protein mixtures (oral doses only). The rates were determined individually from the urinary excretion of ammonia and total urea over a 12 h experimental period. Except with oral glycine and alanine, the… CONTINUE READING
