Concentration of selenium in liver in relation to copper level in normal and copper-poisoned sheep



Concentration of selenium in liver in relation to copper level in normal and copper-poisoned sheep



Acta Veterinaria Scandinavica 19(3): 472-474



Livers from 45 sheep with chronic Cu poisoning during 1974-77, with liver Cu from 150 to 910 mu g/g wet weight, and from 88 normal sheep, selected to cover a represented range of liver Cu from 2 to 830 mu g/g, were studied. In the complete material, liver Se was from 0.02 to 0.74 mu g/g wet weight, mean 0.22 mu g/g and 26 livers had Se 0.10 mu g/g or less. There was no difference in liver Se between 2 groups. There was no correlation between Se and Cu in the normal or the Cu-poisoned sheep.
