There is a growing body of evidence that amino acid (AA) signalling in the mammary gland may play a key role in milk production of ruminants through modulation of translational regulation (Moshel et al. 2006; Toerien & Cant 2007). It has been postulated that the effect of nutrient signalling on elements of translational control of milk protein synthesis may contribute to the variable responses of milk protein yield observed following nutritional perturbations (Hanigan et al. 1998). Consistent with this hypothesis, we have reported that changes in the mean and variance of intracellular free AA (FAA) in the bovine mammary gland are associated with ... continued
