The absorption of three amino acids (leucine, alanine and lysine) from the washed, closed rumen was studied in a short-term (75 min) experiment in situ. The concentration of leucine and alanine did not change in the rumen during the experiment, while that of lysine continuously decreased, and 40% of the total lysine placed in the rumen was absorbed during the experimental period. The rate of absorption decreased in proportion to the fall of amino acid concentration.

Abstract  

Rare earth picrate complexes with L-leucine (Leu) were synthesized and characterized. Elemental analysis (CHN), EDTA titrations and thermogravimetric data suggest a general formula RE(pic)32Leu⋅5H2O (RE=La–Lu, Y and pic=picrate). IR spectra indicate the presence of water and suggest that L-leucine is coordinated to the central ion through the nitrogen of the aminogroup. The absorption spectrum of the solid Nd compound indicates that the metal-ligand bonds show a weak covalent character. Emission spectra and biexponential behavior of the luminescence decay of the Eu compound suggest the existence of polymeric species. Thermal analysis results indicate that all the compounds present a similar behavior, with five major thermal decomposition steps. The final products are rare earth oxides. A slow heating rate is necessary to observe all decomposition steps.

Enthalpies and entropies of sublimation for N-acetylglycine amide (NAGA), N-acetyl-L-alanine amide (L-NAAA), and N-acetyl-D-leucine amide (D-NALA) were determined from the dependence of their vapour pressures on temperature, as measured by the torsion-effusion method.

An investigation into the influence of phytates on the in situ absorption of amino acids (lysine, glutamate and leucine) and glucose from the intestinal lumen of 3-week-old chickens was carried out. Birds were anaesthetised and the intestines exteriorised. Uptake of 5 mM of each nutrient over a 4-min period was measured in the presence of four phytate concentrations (0, 50, 250 and 500 mM). Five birds were used for each nutrient at each concentration of phytate tested. Leucine uptake decreased linearly (P < 0.001) and that of glutamate showed a tendency to decrease (P = 0.055) as the phytate concentration increased. Absorption of lysine and glucose were unaffected by the presence of phytate. In conclusion, phytate in the small intestinal lumen exerted a depressive effect on the absorption of specific free amino acids from the lumen. Its depressive effect was greatest for leucine followed by glutamate, and phytate had little effect on the absorption of lysine.

Abstract  

14C labelled solid D- and L-leucine decomposes with significantly different rates by auto-radiolysis. The -decarboxylation ratio (103xCO2%)D/(103xCO2%)L was found to be (2.3±0.2)/(1.2±0.2)= 1.9±0.5 for samples kept in evacuated tubes at room temperature for 1 year /sp. activity: 0.9 MBq g–1; -dose: 224 Gy/. EPR indicates a 10% higher radical concentration in the stored solid D-leucine samples than in L-leucine. The relevance of these results to the question of origin of optical onehandedness in life, is discussed.
