Muscle protein turnover in rats fed on diets containing different levels of Vicia faba L. and casein as source of protein.

Abstract

The effects of intake of Vicia faba L. and casein as the sources of protein on protein synthesis and breakdown were investigated. The results showed that the protein deposition as a percentage of body weight as well as the muscle and myofibrillar nitrogen content are not altered by the experimental diets. The values of myofibrillar gain (mg N2/day) were… (More)
