Folate deficiency of the intestinal mucosa



Folate deficiency of the intestinal mucosa



American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 26(7): 728-737



Weanling Furth-Wistar rats were given a diet deficient in folacin. They were killed after an overnight fast and in sections of intestine folacin was estimated with Lactobacillus casei. Total mucosal crypt and villus heights and crypt and villus epithelial cell nuclear size were estimated by microscopy. Faecal fat excretion was measured. Rats born of mothers deprived of folacin were also studied.
