Then, the animals were sacrificed by cervical dislocation, and muscle in leg and calipash were removed and transferred to plastic bag.
Prior to amino acid analysis, muscle and calipash samples were freeze-dried and separately homogenized.
Fatty acid analysis of muscle and calipash samples was performed in triplicate.
Statistical significance was set at P 0.05); however, there were significant differences in the concentrations of six amino acids (methionine, valine, isoleucine, leucine, cystine, and tyrosine) in calipash. The concentrations of methionine, valine, isoleucine, leucine, and tyrosine in male JP were higher than those in male HR (P < 0.05), and the concentrations of valine, isoleucine, leucine, and cystine in female YR were higher than those in male HR (P 0.05).
Among the FAAs, glutamic acid was the most predominant in muscle, and glycine was the most predominant in calipash. Furthermore, the concentration of FAAs was approximately 30% of TAAs in muscle and 40% of TAAs in calipash.
