As the assessment of the nutritional status of vitamin E, the validity of red blood cell (RBC) tocopherol concentration was examined in relation to tocopherol concentration in the liver and in its subcellular fractions. When 10 mg/kg of dl-alpha-tocopherol was injected intramuscularly to vitamin E deficient rats, plasma tocopherol reached a maximum level earlier than did RBC tocopherol and liver tocopherol. However, as the correlation in tocopherol concentrations between RBC and plasma and… CONTINUE READING
