  • The effect of vitamin A deficiency on body weight of rats, protein content of their retinas and the in vitro incorporation of [3H]leucine, [14C]glucosamine and [3H]fucose into the TCA-insoluble material of these retinas were studied. The results showed that: 1. (1) Rats maintained on a vitamin A-deficient diet stopped growing after about 4 weeks on the diet. They maintained a more or less constant weight for about 4 more weeks and then lost weight precipitously. Rats that had been on the… CONTINUE READING
