Branched-chain Amino Acids Reverse the Growth of Intrauterine Growth Retardation Rats in a Malnutrition Model

Abstract

This experiment was conducted to determine the effect of dietary supplementation with BCAA (branched-chain amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine) on improving the growth of rats in a malnutritional IUGR (Intrauterine Growth Retardation) model, which was established by feeding restriction. In the experimental treatment, rats were fed purified diets… (More)
