Cardiac ultrastructural and functional characteristics were determined in copper-depleted and copper-repleted rats. Male weanling rats were randomized into five groups that were fed either copper-adequate or copper-deficient diets. After 5 wk, one group fed each diet was studied to obtain baseline values. At this time, one copper-adequate postweanling group continued to receive the adequate diet as control, one deficient postweanling group was fed the adequate diet to evaluate the effect of… CONTINUE READING
