To study the ability of neonatal piglets to metabolize a nitrogen load and excrete it as urea, 12 newborn piglets, 6 small (0.99 6 0.16 kg; expt. 1) and 6 large (1.86 6 0.16 kg; expt. 2), were infused intravenously with alanine (n 5 8; 4 large, 4 small; treatment) or glucose (n 5 4; 2 large, 2 small; control) at equal ATP equivalents, supplying 25–75% of the resting energy requirements of the piglet over 18 h. To adjust for differences in the baseline urinary urea nitrogen excretion, blood urea… CONTINUE READING
