Zinc (Zn) concentration in the digestive tract of common carp is always > 10 times higher than most animal tissues. In a previous paper, it was reported that this high Zn came from a 43 kDa Zn-binding membrane protein. In this present study it was further found that in the digestive tract of common carp, Zn content was closely associated with the amounts of extracellular macromolecules. The higher the Zn content, the more there is of collagen and glycosaminoglycans. An indirect immunoperoxidase… CONTINUE READING
