Mammalian Protein Metabolism, Volume III, provides an overview of the state of knowledge on mammalian protein metabolism. It enlarges and adds depth to the picture of protein metabolism provided by Volumes I and II. The present volume covers two aspects of protein metabolism not specifically considered in the earlier parts of the treatise. First, there is a section of three chapters dealing with changes in protein metabolism during evolution and during growth and development. At its most fundamental level, this part deals in reality with an aspect of regulation of protein metabolism, since differences in metabolism between species and changes occurring during growth are both outward expressions of genetic control mechanisms that determine the form and characteristics of an animal. The other section in this volume is a survey of methods appropriate to the study of protein metabolism in mammals. This part of the work should prove of special interest to investigators who require a critical evaluation of the possibilities and limitations of methods applicable to intact animals.
