Department of Food Science and Nutrition, Nara Women's University, Japan.


The plasma level of sialic acid (NeuAc) in inherently scorbutic [Osteogenic Disorder Shionogi (ODS)] rats was increased by 21 days of vitamin C deficiency. The brain content of NeuAc was decreased by deficiencies of these vitamins. The NeuAc level in the liver was not affected significantly by these deficiencies.
