Distinct increase in biosynthesis of ubiquinone and sterols was observed in regenerating liver tissue of rats; the rate of ubiquinone degradation was not altered. This phenomenon was characterized by incorporation of 14C-tyrosine into ubiquinone and of I-14C-acetate into ubiquinone and sterols in vivo and in vitro. An increased turnover of enzymes, participating in synthesis of the substances, was found in cytoplasm and mitochondria of regenerating liver after administration into animals with… Expand
