Regional distribution and localization of zinc and metallothionein in the intestine of rats fed diets differing in zinc content.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Zinc (Zn) is protective and enhances epithelial repair in gut diseases. In this study we investigate the localization and distribution of Zn and its binding protein, metallothionein (MT), in the gut of rats fed diets varying in Zn content. METHODS Male-Sprague Dawley rats were fed low, normal, high, or excess Zn in their diets (10, 100, 400, or… (More)
