Peptide Transport and Metabolism by the Lactating Mammary Gland.


There has been considerable interest in the metabolism of small peptides by the lactating mammary gland since the discovery that plasma-derived peptides may be an important source of amino nitrogen for milk protein synthesis (1). The uptake of certain essential amino acids is less than their output in milk protein, and evidence suggests that the shortfall… (More)
