The fact that dietary glycine or serine can fulfill the requirement equally weIl [7] shows that it is the synthesis of serine from glycolytic intermediates rather than the conversion of serine to glycine that is limiting. The two non-essential amino acids that require the presence and utilization of essential amino acids for their formation are, as we have said earlier, cysteine and tyrosine. Interestingly, the only part of cysteine that is truly donated by methionine is the sulfur group, the remainder coming from serine (see Fig.

Two NADPH molecules are required per acetyl moiety incorporated into fatty acids beyond the first acetyl unit, and the cleavage of citrate can ultimately provide one of these. The other is provided by other systems such as the hexose monophosphate pathway. Indeed, estimations using tritiated glucose and malate indicate that about one-half the NADPH needed for lipid synthesis comes from malic enzyme and about one-half from HMP [15]. Thus, citrate plays a central role in lipid metabolism. 33 One might ask at this point why a high fat diet does not cause increased fatty acid synthesis, since a high fat diet should produce a high energy state, high acetyl CoA levels from catabolism of dietary fat, and consequently high concentrations of citrate.

The vitamin niacin also spares tryptophan, since tryptophan can be converted to NAD. The amounts of the essential amino acids required for growth or for maintenance vary greatly one from another. The disparities reflect the frequencies of their appearance in body proteins and the differing rates of their catabolism. 3 Protein quality The quality of a dietary protein can be estimated by how nearly its amino acid profile matches the amino acid requirements. How- 39 retardation due to insufficient nitrogen can be· ever, an additional factor must be considered in determining protein quality, and that is the overcome by supplementation with non-essential amino acids.
