The characteristic of arylhydrocarbon hydroxylase system in fetal liver microsomes of rat was investigated. NADH-synergistic effect on NADPH-dependent arylhydrocarbon hydroxylase was observed in fetal liver microsomes of rat but not in maternal liver microsomes. NADH-synergistic effect decreased in parallel with the decrease of the ratio of cytochrome b5/cytochrome P-450 in liver microsomes. The cytochrome P-450 in arylhydrocarbon hydroxylase system in fetal liver microsomes of rat seemed to be different from that in offspring liver microsomes in respect of its dependency on cytochrome b5 system for its maximum activity.
