Vitamin E deficiency in rabbits receiving a high PUFA diet with and without a non-absorbable antioxidant. II. Incorporation of 14C-labelled glycine and L-leucine into liver and plasma proteins.


As determined by in vivo studies using [1-14C] L-leucine and [1-14C] glycine, vitamin E deficiency in young rabbits caused a higher turnover rate of liver proteins and of plasma albumin and globulin fractions. This effect was most clearly and consistently observed in animals fed a diet containing 10 mg of the non-absorbable polymeric antioxidant Anoxomer… (More)
