Effect of high- and low-protein diets on the regulation of rat liver tyrosine aminotransferase and tryptophan oxygenase activities by L-tyrosine and L-tryptophan.

Abstract

Induction of rat liver tyrosine aminotransferase by l-tyrosine and tryptophan oxygenase by l-tryptophan was studied in groups of rats fed on diets containing 18 or 5% protein. The basal activity of hepatic tyrosine aminotransferase of rats receiving 5% protein gradually increased with the age of the animals but that of rats receiving 18% protein did not. l… (More)
