Influence of partial starvation and of acute scurvy on the free amino acids in blood plasma and muscle in the guinea-pig.

Abstract

Various investigators have reported changes in the concentration of the free amino acids in blood plasma and tissues of guinea-pigs in acute vitamin C deficiency. Christensen & Lynch (1948) found in guinea-pigs deficient in ascorbic acid a large decrease in the glycine and glutamine contents of skeletal muscle and in the glutamine content of the liver… (More)
