Dietary medium chain triglyceride increase liver protein synthesis in chicks
K. Kita, R. T. Mabayo, M. Furuse, J. Okumura
This influence of dietary medium chain triglyceride on liver protein synthesis in chicks was investigated using a large dose injection of L-[4-3H] phenylalanine. Dietary medium chain triglyceride increased liver weight and liver fat content of chicks compared to the long chain triglyceride group. Fractional synthesis rate of liver protein was increased by dietary medium chain triglyceride, which was accounted for not by elevating protein synthesized per unit RNA but by enhancing RNA: protein ratio.
