The relationship between placental protein synthesis and transfer of amino acids from mother to foetus was studied in the guinea pig, by using [U-14C]-lysine, -leucine, -glycine, -aspartate and -alpha-aminoisobutyrate. The uptake of label by protein was 12-16% of total label transferred. Cycloheximide inhibited incorporation of all naturally occurring amino acids into protein by 81-96% and transfer by 62-75%; the concentration of label in the free pool was increased for each. These findings… Expand
