OBJECTIVE Restricting dietary methionine to 0.17% produces a series of physiological responses through coordinated transcriptional effects in liver and adipose tissue. The goal of the present work was to determine the threshold concentrations above and below 0.17% at which the beneficial responses to 0.17% dietary methionine are preserved. METHODS Diets were formulated to restrict methionine to different degrees, followed by evaluation of the transcriptional and physiological responses to the… CONTINUE READING
