Plasma amino acid (AA) levels were analysed at various intervals during fasting and after feeding in juvenile brown trout, Salmo trutta. After 3 days of food deprivation, total plasma AAs decreased significantly (–26% vs. control) due to a fall in the most abundant essential AAs (EAA): branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) and Thr, and there was also a decrease in non-essential AA (NEAA) levels, especially Ala and Asn. After 15 days of fasting, BCAA increased, possibly related to muscle protein… CONTINUE READING
