Vitamin C concentrations in tissues of guinea pigs fed the experimental diets. Bars signify the amount of total vitamin C (DHAA + AA) in tissues of guinea pigs fed the Se-D/MC, Se-M/MC, Se-N/MC or Se-N/NC diets. The proportions of DHAA (white portion of bar) and AA (black portion of bar) are shown. Values are reported as the mean. Number of tissues analysed for each diet group are indicated above the bars. For each tissue, data are shown for guinea pigs killed after 5 and 12 weeks on the experimental diets at 48 and 24 hrs post AA dosing, respectively.
