Page 123 - have found that the property of inducing a resumption of growth in rats which have grown as far as possible on a fat-free ration can be conferred on olive oil by shaking the latter with a solution of the soaps prepared by completely saponifying butter fat in a nonaqueous system with potassium hydroxide, according to the method of Henriques.

Page 111 - If we analyze the situation as revealed in the charts of some actual experiments, it becomes apparent that both lysine and tryptophane are unquestionably necessary as constructive units in growth. The decline brought about by the zein food can be stopped by the addition of tryptophane, as such, to the diet. This results in maintenance; but no growth ensues until lysine also is added.
