Assessment of whole-body protein-nitrogen kinetics in the human infant



Assessment of whole-body protein-nitrogen kinetics in the human infant



Bristol Myers nutrition symposia(4): 107-125



A detailed technical review summarizes and discusses the utility of tracer techniques for assessing whole-body protein-nitrogen kinetics in human infants. Attention is focused on: the use of tracers for nitrogen balance and protein turnover studies; examples of amino acid tracer methods; and assessment of "whole-body" amino acid-protein turnover. The specific limitations of this methodology are discussed.(wz)
