An appreciable decrease in the contents of prostatic ascorbic acid and dehydroascorbic acid along with an increase in diketogulonic acid was seen in rats ten days after castration. Castration caused
Sexual difference in ascorbic acid synthesis, tissue ascorbic acid and plasma total antioxidant capacity in mature chickens
TLDR
Females and males differed in ascorbic acid synthesis, as measured by renal L-gulonolactone oxidase activity, and tissue ascorBic acid concentration, and plasma total antioxidant capacity was significantly higher in males than in females.
Effect of dietary vitamin a, ascorbic acid and their interaction on turkey bone mineralisation 1
TLDR
Vitamin A at 16,000 IU/kg reduced femur development as measured by femur weight to body weight or to femur length ratios, and in males, the growth retardation continued to 18 weeks.

ENZYMATIC STUDIES ON THE METABOLISM OF URONIC AND ALDONIC ACIDS RELATED TO L‐ASCORBIC ACID IN ANIMAL TISSUES *
TLDR
The chief object of this paper is to study the enzymatic reactions concerning the metabolism of D-glucuronic and L-gulonic acids and their lactones, as well as of 2,3-diketo-~- gulonic acid.
Species Difference in regard to the Biosynthesis of Ascorbic Acid
TLDR
The Grollman and Lehninger method has shown that, as opposed to mammals, the capacity for synthesizing ascorbic acid in the birds and reptiles they studied, namely, the chicken, pigeon and tortoise, resides in the kidney tissues.
