Protein metabolism after unilateral femoral fracture in the rat, and comparison with sham operation.

Abstract:

Urinary excretion of nitrogen, creatinine and N tau-methylhistidine were measured in the rat after unilateral femoral fracture or sham operation. Increased urinary nitrogen excretion occurred in both groups of rats. Cumulative excretion of both nitrogen and N tau-methylhistidine was slightly greater after femoral fracture than after sham operation and this difference agreed quantitatively with loss of muscle protein from the limb with fracture. Sham operation caused no local effect on muscle-...
