Transcription profiling of blood cells from rats fed a folate deficient diet vs fed a normal diet for 28 days

ABSTRACT: Wistar Kyoto, inbred male rats (M & B, Ry, Denmark) were randomized and fed a semisynthetic pellet diet deficient in folate (TD350, Harland, Madison, Wisconsin, USA) or an identical diet with a normal amount of folate (TD351, Harland). Special analyses were performed to establish the content of Methionine, Vitamin B12, Folate and Vitamin B6 in the two diets. The folate content was <0.06 mg/kg and 1.63 mg/Kg, respectively. Detailed specification of the diets has been published previously. Animals were housed in stainless steel cages with a bed of sawdust, two to a cage, and were allowed free access to food and drinking water. The room temperature was 23a C and the humidity was 45-55 %. Light cycles consisted of 12 h light/12 h darkness. The animals were weighed at randomization and subsequently every seven days. The animal experiments were carried out in accordance with the guidelines of the International Scientific Committee for Thrombosis and Hemostasis, and the Danish Ethical Committee for Animal Experimentation had approved the study protocol. This study consisted of twelve rats fed the folate deficient diet and twelve rats fed the normal diet for 28 days.
