Description Female rats at weaning (30 days age) were maintained on vitamin E-deficient diet for 70 days. The vitamin E-deficient and control animals were sacrificed on 100 days of age. To study recovery a group of animals were supplemented with normal diet for last 25 days after initial 45 days of deficient diet or vice versa. The most striking data found were (i) significant drop in uterine weight in deficient group (ii) significant decrease in estrogen, LH and estrogen-induced uterine enzymes alkaline phosphatase and peroxidase and (iii) ovarian dysfunction as noted by degenerating graffian follicles. The significance of these findings is discussed in this report. (Mol Cell Biochem 198: 151–156, 1999)
