Broiler chicks were fed on chemically-defined crystalline amino acid diets containing graded levels of L-threonine (Thr) during the period 10-20 d post-hatching. Doses of Thr represented 5, 10, 15, 40, 55, 70 and 95% of its ideal level for maximal weight gain and feed efficiency. Other amino acids were maintained at minimized excess levels that were 15% (of ideal) above the various doses of Thr. Following 10 d of feeding and a 24 h fast, chicks were killed for whole-body protein and amino acid… Expand
