Groups of young male Wistar rats of 50g received purified diets in which the source of protein was 18% or 5% casein, or 18% zein supplemented with 0.5% L-lysine, 0.2% L-tryptophan, or both, or a diet with polished rice as sole source of protein, or with the 8 essential amino acids added to give the same amino acid composition as casein, or with omission of lysine, methionine, tryptophan, threonine or phenylalanine.
