Dietary protein limits responsiveness to growth hormone



Dietary protein limits responsiveness to growth hormone



Proceedings of the Nutrition Society of Australia 16: 132



From 60 kg liveweight, 6 groups of 10 sows each were given isoenergetic diets containing 10.6 to 23.6% protein. Each sow was injected daily with porcine somatotropin (pGA) 0 or 3 mg until they reached 100 kg liveweight. Blood was then collected and plasma pGH and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) were estimated by radioimmunoassays. Coefficients of variation were 3% for pGH and 4% for IGF-I.
