The mode of action of anabolic agents: the effect of testosterone on muscle protein metabolism in the female rat

, : The mode of action of anabolic agents: the effect of testosterone on muscle protein metabolism in the female rat. British Journal of Nutrition 52(3): 515-521

Testosterone (1 mg/kg body weight per day) given s.c. to female rats increased their growth rate and food conversion efficiency, but not their food intake compared with placebo-oil controls. A higher testosterone (10 mg/kg body wt per day) dose failed to increase the daily weight gain. The increased growth rate of the testosterone-treated rats appeared to occur in the whole body and not specifically in muscle. There were no significant changes in body composition. The gastrocnemius muscle protein fractional synthetic rate was higher in the hormone-treated rats than in controls. This contrasts with previous results for the anabolic agent, trenbolone acetate, and reflects differences in the mode of action of these 2 different steroids, both with androgenic properties. [This study has applications to animal production with emphasis on increased growth and feed conversion efficiency of farm animals.].
