Daily delivery of dietary nitrogen to the periphery is stable in rats adapted to increased protein intake.


Dietary nitrogen was traced in rats adapted to a 50% protein diet and given a meal containing 1.50 g (15)N-labeled protein (HP-50 group). This group was compared with rats usually consuming a 14% protein diet and fed a meal containing either 0.42 g (AP-14 group) or 1.50 g (AP-50 group) of (15)N-labeled protein. In the HP group, the muscle nonprotein… (More)
