Methionine (Met) is an essential amino acid, which plays an important role in animal growth and development and physiological functions, such as directly involved in protein synthesis, as a methyl donor or antioxidant product, glutathione synthesis, and alleviating liver injury.
Methionine also participates in the conversion of sulfur-containing amino acids in poultry and affects meat quality parameters.Methionine known the lack of a variety of effects on the body, such as decreased body protein and liver protein synthesis, intestinal mucosal immune system, organs would also be affected, can also lead to the normal development of meat chicken intestine obstruction and function is impaired, and enhance its enterotoxin escherichia coli adhesion and cytotoxicity and apoptosis of infected cells, etc.
Methionine content in corn-soybean meal based diets is usually relatively insufficient, which can lead to fatty liver and even liver cancer, and different methionine metabolites have good effects in the treatment of experimental liver disease.
It is also known as the "vital amino acid".As the only sulfur-containing amino acid in poultry diet, methionine plays an important role in life activities of the body, such as promoting growth and development, improving production performance, enhancing immunity and so on.Methionine is an active methyl donor, which plays an important role in nucleic acid biosynthesis and participates in the synthesis and modification reactions of DNA and RNA.In addition, methionine plays an important role in protein synthesis - feeding.
Appropriate methionine can promote the growth and development of poultry, improve the body performance and carcass quality, and enhance the immune function of animals.If methionine deficiency, it will affect the foraging of animals, lead to lower body weight, affect the immune development of their organs, and even lead to the damage of immune organs, and also lead to animal trophic diseases.
