Studies on detoxication by the perfused liver

Georg B Gerber, J. Remy-Defraigne

Research outputpeer-review


Synthesis of hippuric acid was determined in the isolated perfused liver of normal and X-irradiated rats with and without addition of glycine. An increase in synthesis of hippuric acid without addition of glycine was found in Xirradiated liver, indicating an expansion of the free glycine pool . On the other hand, synthesis of hippuric acid in X-irradlated liver was found to be sllghtly decreased when large amounts
of glycine were present in the perfusate.
