Zinc concentrations of serum, nonlymphoid and lymphoid tissues, and the responsiveness of concanavalin-A (Con-A)-stimulated spleen lymphocytes (SL) and cervical lymph node cells ( CLNC ) from ad libitum-fed zinc-deficient (ZD), pair-fed (PF) and ad libitum-fed zinc-adequate rats (AL) were determined. In vitro effects of serum from ZD, PF and AL rats on responsiveness of Con-A-stimulated SL and CLNC were determined. Weanling male Long-Evans rats were fed ad libitum zinc-deficient (less than 1.0… CONTINUE READING
