Specifics of vitamin a deposition in certain mammals


, : Specifics of vitamin a deposition in certain mammals. Byulleten' Moskovskogo Obshchestva Ispytatelei Prirody Otdel Biologicheskii 90(6): 63-70

Content of vitamin A was examined in the liver of 825 specimens representing 13 mammals species. Among phytophagous animals coprophagous (hares, the chinchilla) are distinguished by relative constancy of the vitamin A accumulation. Herbivorous (the musk-rat, coypu) are provided with the vitamin from daily feeding and there are little vitamin deposits in the liver. The European elk suffer from the lack of vitamin A in winter. Predatory animals have well expressed ability to deposit vitamin A in their organisms. There are certain specific differences in abilities to the vitamin A deposition. Recommendations are given concerning additional forage for wild animals with feed containing carotene or vitamin A.
