Measurement of tissue protein synthesis rates in vivo: a critical analysis of contrasting methods.

Abstract

The extension of the flooding method for measuring the rate of protein synthesis, from animal to human tissues, has led to criticism. This is based on the observation that in human muscle, unlike animal tissues, the rate of synthesis in the fasting state measured with constant infusion is lower than that obtained with the flooding technique. Moreover… (More)
