Copper in blood and liver can be divided into several fractions.
Copper in blood is about evenly divided between erythrocytes and

two parts per million. Plasma copper is mainly a copper protein,
ceruloplasmin and a loosely bound form, reacting directly...
The effects of different levels of copper in the diet on growth
rates, blood and liver copper concentrations, hemoglobin levels,
and cytochrome c oxidase activities were determined in the cotton
rat. The response of the cotton rat to different levels of copper was
analagous to that of the common laboratory...
