Response of metallothionein to zinc nutrition status



Response of metallothionein to zinc nutrition status



Chinese Journal of Animal Science 41(8): 23-26



In an experiment, 30 mice, 21 days of age, liveweight 13-14 g, were randomly divided into 3 groups (low zinc group, control group, and restricted feeding group). Mice in group 1 were fed on a low zinc diet. Mice in the control group and limited feeding group were fed on a low zinc diet supplemented with ZnSO4.H4O. Blood samples were taken from 4 mice of each group randomly on the 10th and 20th day of the experiment.
