Abstract

The effect of dietary copper deficiency on rat plasma lecithin: cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) activity was examined. Three groups of rats were used: ad libitum-fed copper-deficient group (0.6 μg Cu/g diet); pair-fed control group (5.9 μg Cu/diet); and an ad libitum-fed control group (5.9 μg Cu/g diet). Copper deficiency produced a significant hypercholesterolemia (57% increase, P
