|2. Protein metabolism and requirements|
Research should be directed towards understanding the regulatory influence of particular amino acids with known or putative actions, such as glutamine, as well as the regulatory influence of overall levels of dietary amino acids on homeostatic, homeorhetic and functional responses. The question whether leucine has a specific effect on protein synthesis is not yet completely resolved.
