Estimation of protein and amino acid metabolism using 15N and 14C labeled tracer amino acids






Journal of Animal and Feed Sciences 5(3): 187-199

Estimation of protein and amino acid metabolism using 15N and 14C labeled tracer amino acids

The possibility of estimating parameters for whole body protein metabolism (synthesis and breakdown) with the help of the end product method and a compartment model using 15N- and/or 14C-labelled amino acids (AA) as tracers is examined. The principle of the method, choice of tracer AA and the measurable parameters are described. The influence of endogenous and exogenous factors on protein synthesis and breakdown is demonstrated using selected results of tracer experiments on rats.
