Iron absorptive function of neonatal pig intestine.

Abstract

To define the iron absorptive phase across the intestinal mucosa of neonatal pigs, the final SgFe concentration ratio of serosal to mucosal medium of everted gut sac at 1 hr incubation was measured. With .2 btg carrier iron (ferric citrate with molecular weight of 1,500) per milliliter of both the serosal and mucosal medium, the duodenum transported the… (More)
