The rate of 3-methylhistidine (3-MH) release from rat perfused hindquarters was measured to investigate the effects of insulin, amino acids and fasting on myofibrillar protein degradation. Since release of 3-MH into the perfusate increased linearly and the pool of free 3-MH in the perfused muscle did not change significantly during 2 h of perfusion, it was… CONTINUE READING
