It has been suggested that protein synthesis in peripheral tissues: (1) responds in a curvilinear manner to increasing feed intake over a wide range of feeding levels; and (2) has a greater sensitivity to intake than protein breakdown. The aim of the present experiment was to test these hypotheses across the ovine hindlimb. Six growing sheep (6-8 months, 30-35 kg), with catheters in the aorta (two), posterior vena cava and jugular vein, received each of four intakes of dried grass pellets (0.5… CONTINUE READING
