Abstract
Maternal dietary zinc (7440666) deficiencies of three to six days in rats are found to produce congenital malformations of the brain, such as exencephaly, hydrocephaly, cleft lip, cleft palate, as well as ocular and skeletal malformations. The results are discussed in relation to human malformations and mental retardation.
