Hepatic availability and uptake of amino acids were measured in fed virgin and 15-day-lactating rats. Lactation did not induce any change in total amino acid availability (expressed per 100 g body wt.). Virgin rats showed a nil hepatic balance, and lactation induced a high net uptake. The high drainage of amino acids by mammary gland does not affect hepatic availability.
