  • SUMMARY: This study was conducted to investigate the effects of fluoride on pancreatic digestive enzyme activities and ultrastructure in young pigs. Three groups of crossbred barrows were exposed to 100, 250, and 400 mg F – /kg (from NaF) in their diets for 50 days. Compared to a control group, the activities of pancreatic lipase and protease (but not amylase) were significantly decreased. Pancreatic acinar cells showed markedly swollen mitochondria and loss of mitochondrial cristae… CONTINUE READING
