Studies on the Nutritive Value of Blends of Sunflower Seed Meal, Cowpea Meal and Certain Cereals - Effect of Feeding Blends from Sunflower Seed Meal, Cowpea and Millets o the Tissue Protein Regeneration of Protein Depleted Rats


Regeneration of proteins, either in liver or in plasma and increase in body weight following protein repletion, have been used as indices to evaluate the quality of protein. Changes in the nutritional state of animal influence the activities of enzyme systems in different organs. Liver loses labile proteins rapidly on protein deficient diets and as a result, serum albumin gets decreased. These conditions are reversible with refeeding. The rate and extent of regeneration depends on the quality and quantity of dietary protein and also the availability of other nutrients.
