Thus when amino acid levels are low, the activating enzymes will be operating nearer their maximum velo city than will the degrading enzymes. 8 D-amino acid metabolism All amino acids used in protein synthesis must be in the L-form. Dietary protein from animal and plant sources provides only L-amino acids. But D-amino acids do enter the body, primarily from digestion of bacteria, whose cell walls contain D-amino acids. An enzyme, D-amino acid oxidase, existing primarily in kidney, converts D-amino acids to their a-keto derivatives.

There appears to be an 'alanine cycle', which provides a means for carrying both nitrogen and carbon from muscle to liver [5]. During starvation, untreated diabetes, or cortisol treatment, when muscle protein is a major source of substrate for gluconeogenesis, the carbon skeletons of amino acids must be transported to liver, since mUScle cannot synthesize glucose from them. Most of the amino acids are not released from muscle cel1s directly into the blood but are first converted to alanine. Alanine then reaches the liver where it can be rapidly converted to pyruvate by the highly active alanine amino transferase and is then available for glucose production[6].

A change in concentrations of fatty acids or fatty acyl CoA can bemanifested rapidly, thereby providing acute control, whereas the change in enzyme activities requires more time and might serve as a long term regulator. We noted earlier that certain enzymes involved in lipogenesis increase under dietary conditions which would provide excess substrate for fat synthesis. It has been controversial as to whether the observed increase in glucose6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD), malic enzyme, and citrate lyase are necessary for the accompanying increased rates of fatty acid synthesis or whether they are merely a reflection of the greater fat synthesis.
