Abstract:

Nitrosamine-associated carcinogensis disturbs the regulatory systems for various enzymes in the liver of rats. In the present paper, the influences of N-nitroso morpholine and diethyl-nitrosamine on the induction of serine dehydratase by casein hydrolysate and fasting were studied. Induction by casein remains unaffected by these two substances. Under diethyl-nitrosamine diet, induction by fasting is considerably increased, whereas N-nitroso morpholine shows no effect. By using glucose it was established, that the increased enzyme activity subsequent to induction by fasting is a consequence of an increased enzyme synthesis. Author
