Effects of Orally Administrated Amino Acids on Myofibrillar Proteolysis in Chicks
We examined the effects of orally administrated amino acids on myfibrillar proteolysis in food-deprived chicks. Plasma N<SUP>τ</SUP>-methylhistidine concentration, as an index of myofibrillar proteolysis, was decreased by the administration of Glu, Gly, Ala, Leu, Ile, Ser, Thr, Met, Trp, Asn, Gln, Pro, Lys and Arg but not by Asp, Val, Phe, Tyr or His to chicks. Orally administrated Cys was fatal to chicks. These results indicate that oral Glu, Gly, Ala, Leu, Ile, Ser, Thr, Met, Trp, Asn, Gln, Pro, Lys and Arg administration suppressed myofibrillar proteolysis in chicks.
