Protein metabolism after injury with turpentine: a rat model for clinical trauma.


Subcutaneous injections of turpentine induced discrete aseptic abscesses in rats without detectable injury to other tissues. Hypoalbuminemia and high circulating concentrations of alpha 2-macroglobulin were present after 48 h. Liver size, protein content, and protein fractional synthetic rate (FSR) were all increased, whereas loss of muscle protein occurred… (More)
