Morphometry characteristic of the gut mucous membranes condition in growing rats with different selenium provision
AbstractThe purpose of the given work was to research an influence of polysynthetic diet with various levels of selenium on a condition of distal small intestine mucous membranes in rats. Mucous membranes of distal small intestine were studied by common morphological and morphometrical methods. The histological estimation of influence of quantity of consumed selenium has shown that adverse changes in a mucous membrane of intestines of the rats receiving low selenium diet are most expressed, and least – at the animals receiving a diet as much as possible enriched organic form of selenium.
