Is methionine transaminated in skeletal muscle?

Methionine transamination is extensive in rat and chick skeletal-muscle homogenates, but is barely detectable in intact rat, but not chick, skeletal muscles. Branched-chain amino acids essentially block methionine transamination in intact muscles and homogenates from both species. The physiological significance of methionine transamination in skeletal muscle is questioned.
