From: Cerebral net exchange of large neutral amino acids after lipopolysaccharide infusion in healthy humans

Amino acid Cerebral net exchange nmol/100 g/min Baseline Cerebral net exchange nmol/100 g/min LPS
Phenylalanine 22 ([-123]-168) -17 ([-243]-210)
Tryptophan -62 ([-251]-125) -166 ([-408]-77)
Tyrosine 197 ([-67]-461) -326 ([-665]-14)
Valine 788 (116-1,460) -331 ([-1,158]-496)
Leucine 650 (263-1,037)** 159 ([-253]-571)
Isoleucine 344 (147-541)* 70 ([-161]-300)
Methionine 64 (8-12)* -42.9 ([-76]- [-9])††*
Histidine 126 ([-162]-415) -215 ([-502]-72)
Threonine 164 ([-157]-485] -355 ([-765]-56)
Glutamine -305 ([-241]-1,805) -3651 ([-6,038]- [-1,260])**
  1. LPS = lipopolysaccharide. Different from baseline, ††P < 0.01. Cerebral net exchange different from 0, *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01.
