Abstract

The action of amino acids prevalent in soy bean proteins, as compared to casein, on lipid metabolism was studied. Administration of aspartate to experimental hyperlipidemic rats produced a pronounced hypocholesterolemic effect and led to an increased alpha-cholesterol level. Addition of glycine, arginine and cysteine to aspartate raised the hypocholesterolemic effect. However, under these conditions the content of triglycerides in the liver as well as their levels in the blood serum of intact experimental animals were increased.
