Influence of Dietary Tryptophan on the Induction of 7-Glutamyltranspeptidase- positive Foci in the Livers of Rats Treated with Hepatocarcinogen1


The ingestion of an elevated level (2%) of t-tryptophan (TRP) in a purified diet was investigated to determine whether it would influence the induction of -y-glutamyltranspeptidase (GGT>positive foci in the livers of rats exposed to a hepatocarcinogen.
