Characterization of iron storage proteins in liver and spleen from normal chicken and chicken with lymphoid leukemia in comparison
with human liver ferritin were considered by Mössbauer spectroscopy (preliminary results). Small differences in Mössbauer
hyperfine parameters for both normal and lymphoid leukemia chicken liver and spleen were observed. The value of quadrupole
splitting for human liver ferritin was higher than those for chicken tissues. A decrease of iron content in lymphoid leukemia
chicken tissues was also found, however, the reason of this fact (pathology or feeding) was not clear yet.
