In this study, we extend previous work on iron deficiency and dopamine (DA) transporters to include an examination of central serotonin (5-HT) and noradrenergic (NE) transporters. Rats were fed either iron deficient (ID) or iron adequate (CN) diets from weaning until adulthood. In males, an additional group of iron deficient animals (IR) were given iron supplementation. DA, 5-HT, and NE transporter binding was done in situ on thin sections. ID males, but not females, decreased DA transporter… CONTINUE READING
