India and the protein problem

, : India and the protein problem. Ecology of Food and Nutrition 1(4): 267-278

Much of the population in India has an insufficient amount of protein in the diet and the diets are almost always deficient in energy. There is no evidence that the quality and concentration of protein in the diet based on cereal and pulse normally eaten in India are inadequate to meet protein needs, provided enough is eaten to meet energy needs. What diets apparently lack is energy foods to avoid the catabolism of the protein which is consumed.

Consistent with their origin from cyanobacteria, plastids (chloroplasts) perform protein biosynthesis on bacterial-type 70S ribosomes. The plastid genomes of seed plants contain a conserved set of ribosomal protein genes. Three of these have prove...

Neuroendocrine effects of the antiestrogen LY117018 were investigated in C57BL/6J mice. A series of s.c. injections of 17.beta.-estradiol (E2) into ovariectomized mice increased pituitary glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH) specific activity...
