Amino acids regulate protein synthesis and breakdown (i.e., protein turnover) and consequently protein deposition, which corresponds to the balance between the two processes. Elucidating the mechanisms involved in such regulation is important from fundamental and applied points of view since it can provide a basis to optimize amino acid requirements and to control protein mass, body composition and so forth. Amino acids, which have long been considered simply as precursors of protein synthesis… CONTINUE READING
