Norepinephrine (NE) turnover rate and tyrosine concentrations were assessed in several tissues of 5-wk-old female lean mice that were fed diets of 20% protein (1.2% tyrosine), 40% protein (2.4% tyrosine) or tyrosine-supplemented diets of 40% protein with 4 or 8% tyrosine or 20% protein with 4% tyrosine for 4 d. Mice fed the 40% protein diet had… CONTINUE READING
