BOBILLIER, E. GRANGE, A. GHARIB, M. LECLERC, N. SARDA and P. LEPETIT 1. Introduction A quantitative autoradiographic method has been developed for the in vivo measurement of local cerebral rates for methionine incorporation into proteins in the free-moving rats [1]. The accurate measurement of brain protein synthesis, using this model, depends on two main assumptions. The flrst one is that methionine enters the precursor pool for protein synthesis from the plasma and that unlabeled methionine derived from steady-state protein degradation does not recycle into this pool.

They were allowed food and water ad libitum and 41 B. M. Mazoyer et at. ). PET Studies on Amino Acid Metabolism and Protein Synthesis. 41-52. © 1993 Kluwer Academic Publishers. ). Under anesthesia, teflon catheters were implanted in the inferior vena cava and abdominal aorta as described previously [2]. During surgery some animals were subjected to bilateral adrenalectomy. The rats were then replaced in their habitual surrounding until experiments were performed 7 days later. 2. m. In a first experiment, animals were partially immobilized.

2). The specific activity of the labeled leucine in the arterial plasma can be maintained constant for a long period of time by means of a programmed infusion. The precursor leucine pool (C pp) can be isolated from other leucine amino acid pools in the tissue by extraction of the tRNA-bound amino acids. These can be deacylated and the released leucine separated by amino acid analysis and assayed for specific activity. 1c,... 0 "'--- c:"lc,... 0 T"une(miD> Figure 2. Detennination of ~. Labeled leucine is administered so that a constant specific activity is maintained in the plasma over a long enough period of time for the brain to reach an apparent steady state with respect to the plasma.
