A study was made on the change in the activities of the following during 10 post-operative days: alcohol dehydrogenase of regenerating rat livers after 70% (median and left lateral lobes) partial hepatectomy. After partial hepatectomy in the rats, activities of regenerating liver alcohol dehydrogenase significantly increased in the sixth day. The activities of microsomal ethanol-oxidizing system in the regenerating liver markedly increased from the third day after partial hepatectomy. However, no significant changes in hepatic catalase was noted throughout the experiments. The activities of cytosolic and microsomal aldehyde dehydrognease in the regenerating liver significantly increased from the sixthe day and the third to the sixth day respectively, but mitochondrial aldehyde dehydrogenase showed no change.
