Lysozyme levels in tissues of iron-deficient rats

  • Adria Rothman Sherman
  • Ira Wolinsky


Rats were fed either diets sufficient (300 ppm) or insufficient (5 ppm) in iron for 10 weeks. The iron-deficient animals had lowered hemoglobin and hematocrit levels and higher levels of kidney lysozyme activity than did control animals. There were no significant changes in serum and spleen lysozyme activity levels.
