Kinetics of iron absorption by in situ ligated small intestinal loops of broilers involved in iron transporters.


Two experiments were conducted with 28-d-old commercial male broilers to study the kinetics of iron (Fe) absorption and the effect of Fe treatment on divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1) and ferroportin 1 (FPN1) mRNA levels in in situ ligated segments from different small intestinal regions of broilers. In Exp. 1, we compared Fe absorption in 3 small… (More)
