^{1 }Values in a column without a common letter differ, P < 0.05. Values are means ± SEM. ^{2 }n values are in parentheses. ^{3 }Rats from diet groups Zn60, Zn120 and Zn240 characterised as nonresponders for plasma Cu. ^{4 }Rats from diet groups Zn60, Zn120 and Zn240 characterised as responders for plasma Cu.
