With the development of research into protein metabolism, focus has been transformed from crude protein to digestible amino acids. Seeking proper animal models and applying correct and acute approach are the prerequisite for fully elucidating the metabolic kinetics of nitrogen, which plays an important role in evaluating dietary protein quality, economically utilizing protein resource and improving human health. The aim of the review is to clarify the theory and its method for interorgan metabolism of nitrogen including amino acid metabolic responses in nonruminants.
