A deficiency of vitamin B6 has been reported to enhance oestrogen responsiveness of the uterus in rats whereas zinc deficiency provokes a syndrome suggestive of a diminution in oestrogen sensitivity. In this study [3H]oestrogen uptake by the uterus was increased in rats deficient in either nutrient and the differences were additive in the dually deficient animals. The total number of oestrogen receptors per g tissue was unaffected by either nutrient but the proportion of the receptors recovered from the nuclear fraction increased from about 6 to 74% when both nutrients were withheld. The results are consistent with the hypothesis that both zinc and pyridoxal phosphate play important metabolic roles in end-organ responsiveness to oestrogen.
