Sources of carbon skeleton of alanine released from skeletal muscle.


The formation of alanine, glutamate, and aspartate from muscle was studied in the isolated perfused hindquarter of rats fasted for 48 h. Tracer doses of (14C) compounds with high specific activity were tested as precursors for the amino acids. Total amounts and radioactivities of the tested amino acids were determined. Alanine was produced more efficiently… (More)
