Effects of chronic betaine ingestion on methionine-loading induced plasma homocysteine elevation in rats.

Abstract

The effects of chronic betaine ingestion were investigated in rats. Rats were fed an experimental diet containing 5% betaine for 4 wk and methionine was intravenously administered. The elevations of plasma homocysteine were assessed by comparing the increments to the initial measured value and the positive incremental area under the plasma homocysteine… (More)
