These data indicate that ractopamine induces muscle protein accretion and increased the myofibrillar and total protein synthesis.
An increase in myofibrillar protein degradation can decrease net protein accretion in skeletal muscle if not compensated by increased protein synthesis.
Consumption of fluid skim milk promotes greater muscle protein accretion after resistance exercise than does consumption of an isonitrogenous and isoenergetic soy-protein beverage.
9) Untrained athletes who begin a new resistance training program require extra protein for myofibrillar protein accretion in the first few months.
Furthermore, Lys plays an important role in protein accretion and growth performance.
Absorption speed of amino acids is a critical factor in regulating postprandial protein accretion.
If protein degradation is reduced with a concomitant increase in protein accretion the resulting effect would generate a greater stimulus for muscle growth and enhanced recovery, potentially resulting in greater strength gains (Kraemer et al.
The impact of growth implants on enhancing gain and feed efficiency is thought to occur by an increase in protein accretion.
1989) designed consecutive trials to measure, simultaneously, requirements for maintenance and for body protein accretion for pigs.
For growing animals, amino acids are basically used for protein accretion and maintenance and deposited protein relies on the level of the first limiting amino acid.
