The effects of dietary vitamin E levels on tissue α-tocopherol (α−T) concentrations in different parts of the nervous system are largely unknown. Therefore, we measured the α−T contents of nervous and other tissues obtained from beagle dogs fed for two years a vitamin E-deficient diet (−E, 0.05±0.02 mg vitamin E/kg diet, n=2), a vitamin E-supplemented diet (+E, 114±14 mg/kg, n=2), or a standard chow diet (En, 74±6 mg/kg, n=3). Brain regions and spinal cords of +E dogs contained about double the… CONTINUE READING
