A familiarity with factors involved in the mechanism and route through which proteins and amino acids are metabolized would undoubtedly help in evaluating protein and amino acid needs of man under various physiological and pathological conditions. Inasmuch as the literature indicates the blood amino acids reflect the size and qualitative characteristics of the amino acid pool, the available chemicl, radiochemical, and chromatographic procedures for determining amino acids has proved to be the most practical in terms of sample size, rapidity, and convenience of analysis. The report indicated that procedures developed under this contract are suitable for metabolic studies concerned with determination of nutritional individuality.
