Gender and dietary amino acid supplementation influence the plasma and whole blood taurine status of taurine-depleted cats



Gender and dietary amino acid supplementation influence the plasma and whole blood taurine status of taurine-depleted cats



Journal of Nutrition 121(11 Suppl): S173-S174



After 18 weeks on a dry commercial diet with 0.12% taurine 10 male (5 castrated) and 9 female cats were given a purified diet with 0.05% taurine for 8 weeks. Then the purified diet was given as before or free from taurine for 100 days (period 1). For the next 150 days the purified diet was supplemented with arginine 0.1, threonine 0.2, methionine 0.3 and cystine 0.5% (period 2). Finally they were returned to the initial commercial diet (period 3).
