Regulation of metabolism during lactation in the rat.

Abstract

The physiological, endocrine and biochemical alterations which occur in the lactating rat to allow direction of the nutrients (glucose, amino acids, non-esterified fatty acids, triacylglycerols) to the lactating gland are described. In addition, the short-term changes in the rate of synthesis of milk constituents and the mechanisms whereby they occur are discussed.
