Abstract

Despite the extensive study of protein effect to man and domestic animals, protein effect of sunflower seed oil cake to the growth and value of erythrocyte in rats is still remained to be investigated. This study is to investigate the effect of protein of sunflower seed oil cake to the rat growth and value of erythrocyte as well as the liver weight, heart, kidneys and spleen of rats. Sixty to seventy-days-old, male Sprague-Dawley rats weighing 50-60g, were used in this experiment and 36 rats allotted to 4 groups: standard, 30% cake, 20% cake and low protein. The standard group was fed for 7 weeks on the ration supplemented with 17% casein, 30% and 20% cake groups with sunflower seed oil cake by 30% and 20%, respectively, and low protein group without any supplementation. To observe value of erythrocyte, blood was taken from heart. Value of erythrocyte, hemoglobin and hematocrit value were determined by usual method and oxygen consumption by the method of Watts and Gourley. The result of this experiment suggests that it is recommendable to supplement deficient amino acids in animal.
