Immobilization stress leads to increases in glutamiC and aspartic levels in serum and brain (36). The mechanism of epinephrine action does not involve the inhibition of amino acid efflux. The physiological role of this adrenergic modulation of the amino acid release from proteins by the increased epinephrine secretion lies in the provision of precursor for gluconeogenesis. In this context is it important to note that during stress the interorgan flux of amino acids is changed in that a decrease in plasma amino acid levels makes itself evident (37).
