The levels of free, peptide-bound and protein-bound amino acid nitrogen in endogenous N at the distal ileum of the pig were determined when the digestion of protein after sample collection was minimized. Six 14-kg pigs were fed a protein-free diet and samples of digesta from the distal ileum were collected. The digesta were centrifuged and the supernatant… CONTINUE READING
