The impaired absorption and metabolism of Fe seen in riboflavin deficiency is attributed, at least in part, to a hyperproliferative response in the small intestine, associated with an altered morphology. Studies were conducted in female weanling Wistar rats to explore further the effect of riboflavin deficiency on the cytokinetics and structure of the small… CONTINUE READING
