Abstract

We determined both basal and induced AHH activity in livers of six partially inbred strains of rabbits. Strain III rabbits had the highest enzyme activity upon induction by 3-MCA, i.e., four to five times that in strain WH (noninducible), which has the lowest enzyme activity. AHH induction was also "low: in strains X, OS, ACEP, and AC. F1 hybrids between strains III and WH revealed a differential response to the induction of liver AHH activity by MCA: the levels of induced hydroxylase activity were consistently higher in (III X WH)F1 rabbits than in the reciprocal (WH X III)F1 hybrids. All possible crosses between these two "extreme: strains are now being analyzed to estimate the number of genes involved in their response difference to MCA.
