The question is how to assess the turnover of protein in the human body? 6, the issue quickly becomes complex. Much effort has been spent in devising methods to quantify various aspects of protein metabolism in humans in meaningful terms. 8. These methods, which range from simple and noninvasive to expensive and complicated, are described below. 8 Methods of Measuring Protein Metabolism in Humans METHODS OF MEASURING PROTEIN TURNOVER AND AMINO ACID KINETICS Nitrogen Balance The oldest (and most widely used) method of following changes in body N is the N balance method.
12 agreed well with the multi-compartmental model, which means that under many metabolic circumstances, the simpler approaches should accurately follow directional changes without requiring introduction of complicated compartmental models. These and intermediate models have been reviewed (75, 85), and the various assumptions, limitations, strengths, and weaknesses have been discussed. The leucine/KIC tracer system remains the single most applied measure of whole-body amino acid kinetics used to reflect changes in protein metabolism ( 83).
To resolve these four cases, we have to look directly at rates of protein turnover (breakdown and synthesis) using a labeled tracer. 8. Illustration of the N balance technique. Nitrogen balance is simply the difference between input and output, which is similar to the introduction of a coin into a gumball machine resulting in a gumball being released. The perception of only the “in” and “out” observations is that the machine changed the coin directly into a gumball or that the dietary intake becomes directly the N excreted without consideration of amino acid entry from protein breakdown (B) or uptake for protein synthesis (S).
