Abstract
Specimens of mullet (Mugil cephalus), a marine fish, were given single doses of 3-methylcholanthrene intraperitoneally and the activity of the microsomal mixed-function oxygenase system in the liver was measured by the metabolism of benzo(a)-pyrene. The enzyme system was found to be inducible with concomitant ultrastructural changes in the hepatocytes. The specific activity and the metabolic profile approximate those of the rat.
