The effects of a single injection of porcine insulin on free amino acid levels in plasma, erythrocytes, hepatopancreas and skeletal muscle were simultaneously monitored in common carp; the fish were force-fed a complete diet composed of crystalline amino acids as the sole protein precursors (amino acid diet) to study the dynamics of amino acid metabolism. The force-feeding of the amino acid diet caused surges in the concentrations of almost all amino acids in fish injected with saline, and… CONTINUE READING
