Effects of marginal and severe iron deficiency on hepatic proteins in developing rats are reversible with dietary iron repletion.

Abstract

Transferrin, metallothionein, cytochrome P-450, and the in vitro formation of DNA-benzo[a]pyrene adducts were studied in the offspring of dams that were fed diets moderately or severely deficient in iron (Fe). The study was designed to determine whether Fe deficiency-induced alterations were reversible or if they persisted with post-weaning iron repletion… (More)
