Abstract

We hypothesized that there is less suppression of whole-body protein breakdown with feeding in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) who exhibit decreased insulin secretion after a single meal. Using [1-13C]leucine, we measured rate of monoxidative leucine disappearance (whole-body protein synthesis) and protein breakdown in nine CF patient (6-11 y of age) and five healthy control subject (8-10 y of age) during feeding and fasting. In the CF patients, synthesis and breakdown (x̄ ± SD) were 172 ± 61 and 157 ± 67 μmol · kg-1 · h-1 during feeding and 140 ± 24 and 178 ± 26 μmol · kg-1 · h-1 during fasting. The respective control value were 129 ± 27 and 114 ± 20 μmol · kg-1 · h-1 during feeding and 136 ± 13 and 173 ± 18 μmol · kg-1 · h-1 during fasting. Leucine balance was nearly identical in the two groups. By analysis of variance, there was a significant effect of feeding on protein breakdown but no difference between the group. However, when each group was analyzed separately, feeding resulted in a 34% decrease in breakdown in the control subjects (P = 0.001) and a 23% increase in synthesis in the CF group (P = 0.058). Plasma insulin concentrations did not differ in the two groups. Thus, feeding may effect protein turnover differently in children with CF than in control children independently of plasma insulin concentration.
