Abstract: 

In order to determine the copper status, current study was carried out to measurement the amounts of ceruloplasmin and copper of serum, liver and kidney of sheep in Shahrekord slaughterhouse and to consider the correlation between the mentioned factors in sheep. To do this, in slaughtered sheep were measured and the correlation between the ceruloplasmin and copper of serum and between the copper of serum and copper of liver and kidney were determined. The sample collections were carried out from November to December 2003 in Shahrekord slaughterhouse. The amounts of ceruloplasmin and copper of serum, liver and kidney were measured, using Sunderman and Nomoto method and atomic absorption spectrophotometer, respectively. The minimum and maximum amounts of ceruloplasmin were 4 and 29 mg/dl respectively (20.92±4.17). The corresponding values for the copper of serum were 0.6 and 2.2 respectively (1.3±0.39). The corresponding values for the copper of liver were 87ppm and 570ppm (343.61±139.74) and the minimum and maximum amounts of kidney copper were 10 mg/kg DM and 36 mg/kg DM (19.79±4.26). There was a significant correlation (p<0.01) between ceruloplasmin and copper of serum (r=0.941). There was also significant correlation (p<0.01) between ceruloplasmin and copper of liver (r=0.572), copper of serum and copper of liver (r=0.533), ceruloplasmin and copper of kidney (r=0.488), copper of serum and copper of kidney (r=0.426) and copper of liver and copper of kidney (r=0.283), respectively. In conclusion the determined amounts of copper of serum, liver and kidney and the amount of ceruloplasmin were within the normal range. Finally, it can be concluded that the risk of copper deficiency is low in sheep in this area.
