Abstract

In steady-state conditions, the amount of protein synthesized is equivalent to the amount of protein broken down daily, so that concentration in the plasma remains fairly constant. As a matter of fact, the rate of synthesis may change considerably during the day owing to periods of digestion or sleep, or to the effect of endogenous regulatory factors, and similar changes probably occur for the catabolic process. Moreover, variations of the size of pools during activity and rest are in part responsible for the large fluctuations of protein concentration observed for some plasma proteins.
