Mechanisms of protein degradation : what do the rat studies tell us

Uremia induces substantial changes in protein metabolism. The branched-chain amino acids serve as useful markers of these changes and their catabolism is increased in uremia, particularly in the presence of metabolic acidosis. Glucocorticoids also are involved in accelerating protein degradation, an...
