Only a small fraction of the L-[U-14Clglutamate (2%) and the L-[U-14Clglutamine (34%) administered at a 6 rnrw concentration into the lumen of rat jejunal segments in situ was recovered unchanged in venous blood collected from the segments. The remaining 14C of both amino acids was recovered in the blood as CO, (60%), proline (5%), citrulline (4%), alanine (3%), ornithine (2%), and organic acids, mostly lactate (19%). The amide nitrogen of glutamine was recovered mostly as ammonia and the amino… CONTINUE READING
