Abstract

In view of the fact that the calorie : protein ratio profoundly influences growth and N retention, certain adjustments may be expected to occur in some tissues. In the work now described, the relationship between the calorie content of the diet and growth and N retention has been studied by ascertaining the effects on carcass, liver and plasma constituents of changes in the calorie : protein ratio in casein diets which either contained equal quantities of protein or were isocaloric, the calorie : protein ratio being modified by the inclusion of cellulose or by increasing the fat or protein content.
