Ractopamine at 0 or 20 mg/kg and protein at 130 or 170 g/kg diet were used in a 2 x 2 factorial experiment arranged in six randomized complete blocks of 64-kg pigs. On d 21, pigs were intravenously administered 1 microgram isoproterenol/kg body wt, and blood was sampled at -60, -30, 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 60, 90 and 120 min relative to injection. Subcutaneous adipose tissue samples were used to measure in vitro lipolytic and lipogenic responses to isoproterenol. Regardless of dietary treatment… CONTINUE READING
