This hormonal increase also overlaps with the period for which the maximum growth occurs in broilers and requires maximum protein accretion.
In regard to the fact that we failed to see any superior increases in muscle mass in the HC or HPC group as a result of the higher daily carbohydrate intake, this may be explained on the premise that it has been shown that carbohydrate does not augment exercise-induced protein accretion versus protein alone (Staples et al.
Consumption of fluid skim milk promotes greater muscle protein accretion after resistance exercise than does consumption of an isonitrogenous and isoenergetic soy-protein beverage.
Considering the greater potential of gilts for muscle protein accretion (SCHINCKEL & LANGE, 1996; GRANDHI & NYACHOTI, 2002) their lysine requirement to maximize gain efficiency is greater compared to barrows.
Slow and Fast Dietary Proteins Differently Modulate Postprandial Protein Accretion," Proc.
Lysine is used as the reference AA mainly due to its importance for protein accretion and maintenance, the fact that its determination is relative easy, and numerous data have been collected for poultry [7, 18].
We were not giving them any proteinat all for the first 2 days, and when we did, we weren't giving them enough to compensate for their protein accretion rate, which lead to a negative nitrogen balance," he added.
9) Untrained athletes who begin a new resistance training program require extra protein for myofibrillar protein accretion in the first few months.
In contrast to the shape of the protein accretion curve, daily fat accretion continues to increase throughout the growing and finishing periods to slaughter at 114 to 123 kg (250 to 260 or 270 lb).
1996) compared nitrogen retention obtained in digestion trials with protein accretion obtained by serial slaughter, and they reported that nitrogen retention overestimated protein accretion of growing cattle.
