Dietary Thr may be particularly important to the mucus layer because of the importance that Thr has as a structural component of mucin proteins. Threonine and serine (Ser) play crucial roles linking carbohydrate groups through ester linkages to the mucin backbone (Montagne et al. 2004). Lein et al. (1997) reported that Thr and Ser represented approximately 40% of the total endogenous AA losses in ...
