A,B Effects of starvation-refeeding on synthesis rate of proteins in mixed skeletal muscle and liver tissue. FSR% was measured with the “flooding dose” technique ([14C]-Phe) as described. Animals were freely fed, starved for 12 hours or refed during 3 hours after starvation period as described in Methods. Results are mean ± SEM for 7–9 animals per group. a-p<0.05 vs. freely fed and refed mice.
