In vivo and in vitro developmental toxicity in LPS-induced zinc-deficient rabbits.


Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was used to induce maternal hypozincemia in order to test the hypothesis that altered zinc homeostasis is developmentally toxic in the rabbit. Treatment of dams on Gestation Day (GD) 8 with LPS (0.67 microgram/kg i.v.) caused total resorption of 78% (7 of 9) of the litters whereas GD 10 treatment increased the percentage of resorbed… (More)
