Accumulation of Cu, Zn, Mn, Cr and Co in the human liver before birth


, : Accumulation of Cu, Zn, Mn, Cr and Co in the human liver before birth. Biology of the Neonate 20(5): 360-367

Cu, Zn, Mn, Cr and Co were estimated in livers from 30 foetuses, from 20 weeks gestation to full term, and in livers from 5 adults. The Cu concentration in foetal liver was 10 times that in adult livers and the liver at full term had nerly 11/2 times as much Cu as the adult liver. Liver Zn content was higher in younger foetuses than in older ones and all foetal values were above adult values.
