We investigated the roles of insulin and amino acid (AA) in regulating milk production and the uptake of AA and blood flow (BF) by the mammary gland and hind-leg of goats (n = 4). During two periods, either saline or AA (65 g/d) was infused i.v. for 7.5 d, and, beginning on d 5, goats were subjected to a hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp. The insulin clamp elevated plasma insulin levels threefold and insulin-like growth factor-1 by 27%, and euglycemia was maintained by the infusion of glucose… Expand
