We investigated the maintenance of alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and estrogen receptors in primary cultures of rat hepatocytes. Female hepatocytes partially lose ADH activity and completely lose estrogen receptors during 4 days in culture. Growth hormone, which induces both the enzyme and receptor in vivo, did not induce either in vitro.
