The teratogenicity of copper deficiency is well known, but underlying mechanisms have not been delineated. One method of studying the biochemical lesions of copper deficiency is the use of chelating drugs with different chemical characteristics. The teratogenicity of a copper deficient diet and of diets containing either D-penicillamine or… CONTINUE READING
