Infants are exposed to variable copper (Cu) intake; Cu in breast milk is low, whereas infant formulas vary in Cu content as well as the water used for their preparation. Little is known about the regulation of Cu absorption during infancy. The objectives of this study were to determine effects of Cu supplementation on Cu absorption and tissue distribution and the expression of Cu transporters in an infant rat model. Suckling rat pups were orally dosed with 0, 10, or 25 microg Cu/day. Intestine… CONTINUE READING
