Effect of L-leucine-supplemented diet on the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide content of rat liver.


The hepatic nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) content was significantly lower in rats fed a diet supplemented with 0.45-10% L-leucine for 1-3 weeks than in control rats fed laboratory chow (24.6% protein).
