CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Compartmental models of protein turnover to resolve isotope dilution data.

In this chapter, the applications in the animal sciences of dynamic modelling, based on the rate:state formalism, with Type I solutions are illustrated. This chapter deals with modelling animal processes, i.e. specific components or functions of an individual organ or tissue (or whole organism)....

Cover for Modelling phosphorus metabolism.

In this chapter, examples of empirical, kinetic and mechanistic models of phosphorus (P) metabolism in ruminants and monogastric animals, viz. cattle, goats, sheep, horses, pigs and poultry, are discussed. The mechanistic models of P flow in ruminants and monogastric animals described in this...

Cover for Evaluation of a representation of the limiting amino acid theory for milk protein synthesis.

A model describing amino acid (AA) metabolism by the mammary glands of the lactating cow has been constructed (Hanigan et al., 2000a). Milk protein production was predicted using a mathematical procedure to determine which among histidine (His), lysine (Lys), methionine (Met), threonine (Thr) and...

Cover for Isotope dilution models for partitioning amino acid uptake by the liver, mammary gland and hindlimb tissues of ruminants.

Isotope dilution models for partitioning leucine uptake by the liver and mammary gland, and tyrosine uptake by the hindlimb of ruminants have been constructed and solved in the steady state. The models require the measurement of plasma flow rate through the tissue beds in combination with...
