Abstract

The glycogenic effects of the individual amino acids, in the metabolism of normal animals, are by no means well defined. IN some cases, as in those of alanine and glutamic acid, the tendency of the acid to form glucose is generally accepted; in others, of which leucine and lysine are good examples, there is definitely no glucose formation; in still other cases, namely those of glycine and cystine, the contradictory nature of the results obtained by different investigators gives anything but a clear picture of the situation...

It is the purpose of this paper, therefore, to attempt such an estimation of the extent to which certain amino acids can be converted to glucose and glycogen, in the metabolism of the normal animal.
