Abstract

The metabolism of(4-14C) oestrone was studied in the microsomal fraction of the liver of male and female newborn and of adult men and women. The rate of metabolism of (4-14C) oestrone (formation of ether-soluble, water-soluble and protein-bound fractions) is much higher in the liver of the adult man than in the liver of the woman, but in the liver of the newborn there are no sex differences in oestrone degradation.
