Prenatal Development of Acid β-Glycosidases in the Rat Liver, Effect of Triiodothyronine or Cortisone Administered to Pregnant Rats
23 December 2008 (online)
We have found that acid β-galactosidase, β-glucuronidase and N-acetyl-β-glucosaminidase in the rat fetal liver increase during the last week of pregnancy. These enzyme activities were influenced by treatment of pregnant rats (daily from day 16) with L-tri-iodothyronine (20 or 50 µg/100 gm b.w.) or cortisone acetate (10 or 50 mg/100 gm b.w.) as studied in their fetuses obtained on day 22 by caesarian section.
