Uptake of tyrosine and leucine in vivo by brain of diabetic and control rats.


The uptake of tyrosine and leucine by brain of control and diabetic rats was examined using the Oldendorf intracarotid injection technique. The brain uptake indexes (BUI) for tyrosine and leucine were identical in diabetic and control rats when the injectate consisted of labeled amino acids in Krebs saline. When the injectate consisted of radioactive amino… (More)
