Abstract
Estradiol administration to roosters results in changes in the macromolecular composition of the liver. Besides a gradual increase in liver protein and a sudden enhancement of liver DNA after 24 hours, the most pronounced change occurs in the RNA content, viz. an increase up to 190% of controls starting 26 hours after estradiol administration.
