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 Animal products.

In this chapter, equations for milk yield from dairy cows are discussed, followed by energy utilization efficiency for milk production. The next two sections focus on meat production, body composition and allometry, leading to considerations of growth efficiency. Egg production and the amino acid...

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...

Cover for Efficiency of amino acid utilization in simple-stomached animals and humans - a modelling approach.

The objective of this contribution is to describe how early attempts on modelling dietary nitrogen and amino acid metabolism in simple-stomached animals from a causal perspective led to a systematic approach to protein metabolism research. On the one hand, models reduce complex systems down into...

Cover for Assessment of protein and amino acid requirements in adult mammals, with specific focus on cats, dogs and rabbits.

Understanding a comparative approach to protein and amino acid requirements necessitates information on: (1) the animals' natural food preferences; (2) differences in digestive anatomy and physiology; (3) differences in protein and amino acid metabolism; and (4) details on the experimental design...

Cover for Ruminal metabolism of buffersoluble proteins, peptides and amino acids <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">in vitro</i>.

A complex mechanistic model of soluble protein degradation was developed and fitted to literature data of in vitro rumen casein (CAS) and acid-hydrolysed casein (AHCAS) fermentation. Feed amino acid escape was estimated from this model and was compared with estimates made with a simple model of...

Cover for A simple nutrient-based production model for the growing pig.

The basic principles for a simple nutrient partitioning model for the growing pig are outlined. The proposed model is meant for practical feed evaluation and is based on input data for the actual feed, the actual pig and the actual feeding situation. The system is composed of four steps, including: ...
