Abstract

  We examined whether starvation affected the amount of EF-2 protein as well as the level of its mRNA in the liver and skeletal muscle of mice, to understand the molecular mechanism for nutritional adaptation of protein-turnover. Although the amount of EF-2 was diminished by starvation in each of the tissues examined, the amount of EF-2 mRNA did not decrease in parallel with the protein.
