Fig. 4

Phosphorylated protein expression levels of key molecules for mTORC1 signaling pathway (mTOR, Raptor, 4E-BP1, S6K1) in the psoas major muscle of growing-finishing pigs fed the restricted protein diets. Data were normalized to the value of corresponding total protein and expressed as means ± SE (n = 6). Bars with different letters (a, b) are significantly different at P < 0.05. AP = adequate protein; MP = moderately restricted protein; LP = low protein
