To assess the relative importance and interdependence of zinc and vitamin A in retinal function, a group of 36 male Wistar rats were raised in dim illumination and deprived of both zinc and vitamin A (Z-A-) for 90 days (Phase I) until they lost weight and showed signs of both vitamin A and zinc deficiency. Scotopic electroretinograms (ERGs) showed an average 1.5 log unit elevation in light intensity needed to elicit a 200 microV b-wave (criterion intensity) as compared to a control-pair-fed… Expand
