1. 1. The effect of dietary amino acids and protein on cholecystokinin (CCK) release into plasma was investigated in chicks by feeding a meal through a stomach tube, followed by the CCK determination with specific CCK-8 antibody. 2. 2. The results showed that both isolated soya protein and an amino acid mixture simulating the amino acid composition of the soya protein increased the release of CCK, though to a lesser extent with a delayed response in the former, when added to a protein-free diet. 3. 3. Among amino acids added singly to the protein-free diet, phenylalanine was more efficient than arginine and valine, exerting a response almost identical to the complete amino acid mixture.
