Male weanling rats were fed a control diet (46 ppm iron) or an iron-deficient diet (11 ppm iron) for 7 wk to determine the influence of iron deficiency on heme proteins and skeletal muscle mitochondrial respiration. At the end of 7 wk, the hemoglobin in the blood of the iron deficient rats was 35% less and skeletal muscle myoglobin was 20 to 37% less than in the control animals. The concentration of myoglobin in the heart was not appreciably diminished by iron deficiency. Cytochrome c… CONTINUE READING
