Abstract

The liver concentration of the multlenzyme system convertin4 Ialucuronolactone to ascorbic acid in the rat increases with the casein content of the diet and reaches a maximum at 10 per cent level. The quality of the protein has also a profound influence. The liver content of the enzyme 8ystem is very low on diets containing 10 per cent l1elatin, and is enhanced several·fold upon supplementing adequately with methionine and tryptophan. Althoul1h the activity of the enzyme system is lower in starved rats than in rats fed a protein-free diet, the urinary excretions are higher. The probable cause8 for this intriguinl1 observation are dfscu8sed.
