The effect of methionine on bone remodeling parameters of young and adult male rats Vistar was studied. The introduction of excess methionine (250 mg / kg for 21 days) in the diet raises the physiological regeneration of bone tissue in young rats. Increasing their alkaline phosphanase activity in bone tissue testifies to the domination of the osteosynthetic phase of osteogenesis relative to osteolytic. Such a reaction is typical for increasing the number of active osteoblasts or increasing the sensitivity of their receptors. Unlike young animals, in adult male rats, age-related bone tissue changes are manifested in the domination of the osteolytic phase. The obtained results testify to the disease-dependent differences in the effect of the same factor dose on the processes of physiological regeneration and the organic matrix of bone tissue rats in males, which should be taken into account when using medicinal preparations.

Keywords: methionine; physiological regeneration of bone tissue
