We studied the activity and kinetic parameters of microvillous enzymes in intestinal villous cells and the concentration of the secretory component (SC) of p-immunoglobulin A in subcellular fractions of crypt cells in 35-day-old rats made iron deficient from birth and in controls. The aim of the study is to investigate the biochemical basis for the decreased activity of brush-border disaccharidases observed in growing animals with chronic iron deficiency. In rats made iron deficient, the… CONTINUE READING
