Arginine (ARG) was injected (0.8 g/kg, i.p.) into rats and levels of ARG were determined in plasma and four brain areas in the morning and afternoon. In control rats, brain values for ARG and some amino compounds are lower in the afternoon than in the morning. After ARG administration, ARG levels increase about 10-fold in the plasma and 2- to 3-fold in the brain areas. Brain ARG levels follow plasma levels. Elevated ARG levels affect a number of related amino compounds both in the plasma and… CONTINUE READING
