Protein metabolism by the end of this section you will be able to describe how the body digests proteins metabolism pyruvate dehydrogenase complex deficiency and phenylketonuria pyruvate dehydrogenase complex deficiency pdcd and phenylketonuria pku are genetic disorders pyruvate dehydrogenase is the enzyme that converts pyruvate . Human protein metabolism is a succinct review of hundreds of studies on the regulation of protein mass and protein turnover in the human body the biochemistry of protein synthesis and breakdown is summarized and the methods that are used to examine protein metabolism in humans are explained and their limitations discussed. Protein is also used for growth and repair amid all these necessary functions proteins also hold the potential to serve as a metabolic fuel source proteins are not stored for later use so excess proteins must be converted into glucose or triglycerides and used to supply energy or build energy reserves. Protein metabolism contributes 2 3 of the energy requirement in exercise of a few minutes duration and rises to as much as 12 after several hours of physical work protein metabolism and nitrogen excretion are described in chapter 15
