Alcohol and Abnormal Protein Biosynthesis: Biochemical and Clinical focuses on the methods for measuring protein metabolism and the effects of alcohol and altered protein intake as they affect the heart, liver, skeletal muscle, and the brain. Organized into six sections, this book begins with an overview on malnutrition and alcoholism, as well as available techniques for the study of protein synthesis. Subsequent section details the adaptation of protein synthesis and transport to alcohol and malnutrition. Section three discusses the skeletal and cardiac muscle protein metabolism. The last three sections describe the reaction of hepatic protein synthesis to malnutrition and alcohol; effects of alcohol on brain RNA metabolism; and alcohol associated cardiac and hepatic disease.In contrast to the connective tissue proteins, those of the contractile cell are very sensitive to dietary intake. The human studies of ... In consequence, a deficit may develop if the muscle protein content of the restricted rats is compared with that of the age control rats. Furthermore ... On the other hand, when rats are starved or fed a protein-free diet, actual losses of muscle protein do occur. Such a change is anbsp;...
