Plasma diamine oxidase activity is greater in copper-adequate than copper-marginal or copper-deficient rats.

Abstract

The object of this study was to determine whether serum diamine oxidase activity could distinguish among adequate, marginal and deficient copper status in rats. Male weanling Sprague-Dawley rats (n = 21) were randomly assigned to one of three dietary regimens, with copper concentrations of 0.52, 1.73 and 6.7 mg/kg diet. On completion of the study, body… (More)
