The entry of iron from blood into the developing rat brain was studied by means of non-heme iron-histochemistry. The content of non-heme iron in the endothelial cells was manifest already from E14, declined from P3 to P5, and was almost absent on P10-P15. The choroid plexus epithelial cells of either ventricle was non-heme iron-containing from E14. Non-heme… (More)
