The hepatic portal veins of cockerels were catheterised to study the effects of 3-h infusions of nutrient solutions on voluntary food intake. An amino acid mixture, infused at rates up to 800 mg N/3 h, depressed intake of a standard diet in a significant linear manner (intakes with the highest dose and control: 1.6 g and 22.6 g/3 h respectively). Infusion of the highest dose into the jugular vein had a smaller and nonsignificant effect (17.2 and 25.3 g/3 h). The effects of combined infusion of amino acids and glucose into the portal vein on food intake were approximately additive.
