Stomach contents of mice fed on a standard rodent breeding diet contained 29-733 microM-soluble nonhaem-iron. A very variable percentage (3-100, mean 49.3 (SE 4.7), n 37) of this Fe was rapidly (half-life less than 1-2 s) available for chelation by the strong Fe(II) chelator ferrozine, with little or no further Fe being available on addition of ascorbate. Ferrozine-available Fe could be detected in the duodenal lumen at concentrations up to 60 microM in vivo and after in vitro neutralization of… CONTINUE READING
