Four diets were used in this investigation. Their protein contents varied from 0 to 40 per cent., being balanced by inverse changes in sugar content. All other constituents, including vitamin supplements, remained constant. Young adult male rats, after a 10-day equilibration period, were given these diets for 10 days and then killed by bleeding under light ether anaesthesia. Other comparable rats were deprived of food for varying periods after the equilibration period and then killed.
