Protein turnover.

Book cover for Protein turnover.

Description

Papers on the physiology and kinetics of protein turnover, i.e. protein synthesis and breakdown, and the different factors that affect it, e.g. diets, diseases (malnutrition and trauma), pregnancy, lactation, hormones and aging, are presented. Also, the different methods for analysing protein turnover in man are discussed as well.
