1. Four chickens were used in nine successive experiments using a single injection radioisotope dilution technique to study the kinetics of endogenous uric acid and urea metabolism. 2. Starvation lowered uric acid and urea entry rates, but elevated the extent of degradation of these compounds. 3. Urea turnover time and the extent of urea pool degradation were higher, and urea excretion rate was lower than that of uric acid. 4. In colostomised chickens, the extent of uric acid and urea… CONTINUE READING
