Title: Zinc and Manganese Levels in the Liver and Blood Serum of Camel from West Omdurman, Sudan
Author: Abdarssol, Adel Abdallah Idress
Abstract: The study meant to determine the levels of zinc (Zn) and manganese (Mn) in liver and blood Serum of camels (Camelus dromedarius) from west Omdurman slaughter house as data base. Twenty samples of blood were collected from life camels (4-6 years old) ten from male and ten from she-camels. Twenty samples of liver were obtained from slaughtered camels (ten samples from each sex). Zn and Mn levels in liver and blood serum were analyzed by using atomic absorption specterophometer (Model Spectr AA 220 F S). The results showed that ash content in liver was not significantly different in both sex, ash content in liver of male was 6.6 % and she-camel was 6.4%. Mn level in liver of she-camels was significantly (P≤0.01) higher 16.2ppm than in males 9.3 ppm. Levels of Mn serum was not significantly different having the same value 0.05µg /100ml. Whereas, Zn level in liver of male was significantly (P≤0.05) higher 128.2ppm than in she-camels 86.4ppm. Zn level in blood serum of she-camels was significantly (P≤0.05) higher 0.024µg /100ml than in males 0.015µg /100ml. It could be conclude that the low levels of Mn and Zn in blood serum in both sexes may be due to content of these elements in natural pasture that reflected in blood serum, while high level of Zn in liver in both sexes, it seem that liver stored Zn and Mn.
