Title: Correlation of Minerals and Enzymes in Blood Serum and Milk of Healthy and Mastitic Cows
Author: ElYas, Ibtisam
Abstract: Levels of minerals (Ca, Na, K, Mg, P, Fe, Zn and Cu) and enzymes (LDH, GOT and ALP) from 45 cows; 15 cows from healthy, 15 with subclinical mastitis and 15 from cows with clinical mastitis were estimated during the present study. The milk samples from clinical mastitis infection revealed positive correlation when comparing sodium and each of calcium, potassium and copper; potassium and each of iron and GOT; calcium and each of copper and iron; and copper and iron. However significant negative correlation were found between zinc and each of sodium, copper and iron. The subclinical milk samples revealed positive correlation between iron and each of calcium and LDH; and Magnesium and ALP, while significant negative correlation were found between sodium and potassium. Correlation between serum minerals and enzymes of blood serum from cows with subclinical mastitis revealed positive correlation between AP and potassium, and LDH and phosphorus, while significant negative correlation were found between LDH and zinc. In subclinical mastitis, magnesium was found to correlate positively with calcium and negatively with sodium. The present study concluded that minerals and enzymes from milk and blood serum of cows can be used as indicator of mastitis infection.
