Regulation of Global and Specific mRNA Translation by Amino Acids

Regulation of Global and Specific mRNA Translation by Amino Acids

A continuous supply of a complete complement of essential amino acids is a prerequisite for maintenance of optimal rates of protein synthesis in
both liver and skeletal muscle. Deprivation of even a single essential amino acid causes a decrease in the synthesis of essentially all cellular
proteins through an inhibition of the initiation phase of mRNA translation… Thus, deprivation of essential amino acids not only directly
and rapidly represses global mRNA translation, but also potentially results in a reduction in the capacity to synthesize protein.
