Data are expressed as mean ± SD; p < 0.05 Vitamin C x control ; Luminescence data are expressed as cpm × 103/mg dry weight/min. Control – were fed a choline-deficient diet for four weeks; Vitamin E – were fed a choline-deficient diet + vitamin E (200 mg/day) for four weeks; Vitamin C (n = 6) – were fed a choline-deficient diet + vitamin C (30 mg/Kg/day) for four weeks.
