Effect of dietary protein and phosphorus levels on calcium and phosphorus metabolism of the young, fast growing rat.

Abstract

Utilizing a 2 X 2 factorial design, male weanling rats were fed diets containing either 25% or 45% casein with 0.35% or 0.8% phosphorus (P). Dietary calcium (Ca) was set at 0.9% for each diet. During the 7 weeks of this experiment, food intakes and body weights were measured weekly; urine and fecal samples were collected daily. Regardless of dietary P level… (More)
