A model of marginal vitamin A deficiency was developed in young rats by limiting the vitamin A intake of dams and of offspring postweaning. Prior to and throughout pregnancy and lactation, female rats were fed diets in which the vitamin A concentration was either low marginal [0.18 retinol equivalent (RE)/g diet], high marginal (0.4 RE/g) or sufficient (4 RE/g). Vitamin A restriction had no effect on dams' reproduction or litter sizes, but total retinol in liver was depleted by the end of… CONTINUE READING
